Actually what I was thinking for the restoration of the Bowlnago after the Horror challenge. This reinforces that.

My orange bike, a Miele Latina. I outed this in the 'Are you looking' thread late last year and then somehow wound up buying it myself - as usual I question my sanity... Jury is still out on keeping it, 58cm so it's on the smaller end of the sizes I can ride and pushing it a bit, but it looks good and rides nicely otherwise. The Syncro II shifts about as well as you'd expect - tolerable at best and I tend to keep it in friction mode.

Very nice transformation.
looks like fresh chrome.
rechroming always makes me hesitant.

Joe, that Colnago is simply gorgeous. I am looking forward to when we can get together and I can see you ride it.

I think I already posted this as yellow, but the papaya above made me go look at it, and next to a yellow bike it IS orange!
1997 Cannondale SuperV900 in "Mango". I think I even found mango touch up paint that makes a perfect match.

The Great Pumpkin. It just manages to accumulate orange stuff. Not shown: the new bright orange grips I just installed.

Might be the oldest bike in the thread?

1956 Crescent, model 201.

I expect it to get brighter when I get around to clean and wax it.
