Posted before, but still an awesome orange bike. It's really a Fuji Team from the early 90s, but when I repainted I loved the decals from this model:

Lots of nice orange eye candy here, but that is something really special.

Iím loving this thread. Hereís a 1988/99 Fast Rabbit custom built out of Reynolds 531 and Columbus tubing by Bob Maharrey. I built a Frankenbike out of it with a mix of Dura Ace, Campy, and 3ttt parts, along with a 1x6 Simplex Retrofriction/Suntour Cyclone set up.

Iím about to swap out the cockpit for Nitto Randonneur bars, a Technomic stem, and black Newbaumís bar tape.

Iím also going to switch to Sugino Maxy cranks with a 46t chainring and a Dura Ace 12-19t corncob.

I almost feel ashamed to post this with all the really nice bikes in this thread, but it is my only orange bike.

1975 Kabuki Super Speed. I bought it because a Kabuki was my first ten speed back in the 70s. This is not its current configuration. I have returned it back to its original specs, or as close as I could remember.

Not classic (well some classic lines ?!?) and certainly not vintage. But it has a Brooks saddle and it's steel....North Rim of the Grand Canyon, Kaibab National Forest. A ride not to be missed.

Added another one to the stable today. A Libertas Mann. Needs a lot of work, and is built with the strangest mix of parts I've ever come across: Zeus, Saccon, Campagnolo, Alfa, Champion, Cinelli, Shimano, TA, Magistroni, TWF, Mavic and some stuff I haven't identified yet, like the heavily butchered saddle.

There's a wonderful orange bike on our local Craigslist... just in time for All Hallows Eve.
I could probably help facilitate if someone fell head over heels in love with it.

Hopefully I'll have an orange bike assembled myself by the end of the month

I would think $299 to be ambitious WITH the pedals and especially the seat.
