I forgot, I have another black bike. Maybe that's an indication that I have too many bikes. Tommasini Super Prestige.

Looks startlingly like my '72 Raleigh Competition (or now).

Wake me up when this is all settled.

Here is my early 1980s Ross MTB that I keep at my parents' house in the USA.

Ross Suntour AGtech Rear 01 (3).jpg

The photo is terrible but it's heavily sun-faded gloss black and looks much worse than the pictures indicate. Tubing is probably mid-grade Ishiwata (27.0 mm seatpost).

This summer I sourced and installed the NOS Suntour AG Tech derailleurs that were probably original to the bike. Someday I'd like to find a set of the gold-anodized rims and hubs that it probably had originally.

May as well add this one. Black Pearl. Posted before, but here again since it's close enough to black I think.
