Post your multi-colored bikes

I wanna see some color! Two-tone? Tricolore? Fades?
Let's see 'em.


I'll start. I wish I took pictures of my old bikes back in the day, so instead, here are some images I found of similar bikes to mine:


My first flashy, multi color bikes was one of these (pic grabbed from internet, not mine)



And then one of these (photo grabbed from google search)


which got stolen so I replaced it with (internet photo)



So let's see some color!

Not c&v, but its steel frame and fork and a level top tube....



This is one I refurbished and sold- I always love the splatter and visual depth paint schemes of the early 90s.

Back in 2001 I decided that I want my Miele Tange Infinity frame to be Italian colours to go with the 9-speed Campagnolo Mirage and Veloce components I'd bought for it. This is the result.

Craig's List find last summer. Used it on my smart trainer all winter, riding it now due to my main bike being in the shop going on two weeks now.

Mid 80's Peugeot UO14, made in Canada. Not as splashy as some of these other bikes but has lots of colour!

The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly

The Good

The Good.



The Bad.

​​​How could anyone do this to a GIOS-torino Super Professional with silver "coins"...


The Ugly.

Painted with a brush - and to be fair, it's a work in progress, (but I'm riding it.)

Doesn't everyone have a soft spot for Eli Wallach?

While I love me some stealthy / murdered-out /Darth Vader / Bat Mobile bikes, these are awesome. They all put a smile on my face.

Here are two that I built for friends:

Here are my two:

My wife's recently replaced Fondriest Carb Level 03, Monumental SAT. base colors are a fade from sky blue to gold, with CF fork and rear triangle.

My first C&V purchase. Mid to late 80's Ciocc, vertical fade sky blue to white, both in metallic paint. a pretty nice original paint job.
