I have a couple brewing for spring. (Crossing fingers that the requisite free time presents itself.)

I'm loving the proper red & green bikes! Still waiting for a red/white/green Gianni Motta, though.

I can offer a red Hetchins against a background that has some red & green....



and my green touring bike (built by Rich Powers), with no red other than the tail light...




I do have a photo with a bike and some red & green that is certainly in the spirit of the season...

One of each: the Moto GR in red, and the upcoming Hampsten Strada Bianca in a very light green (a.k.a. pistachio). Not the actual bike, but the color will be the same.

@merziac, thanks for posting a 7-Eleven Merckx! Heaven help me if I stumbled into a nice one in my 56/57 size. In the interim, I'm satisfied with the jersey.....

Some red and green. Think of the white as snow.

I'm sure going to miss these green tubulars though... one more pair hanging in the garage and then I'll have to get gumwalls or something less matchy matchy.

The one I wanted for Christmas back in '69 didn't have alloy rims, SunTour barcons, a Stronglight crank, a Record front derailleur or a Duopar Titane rear derailleur.
