Green and/or Red bikes: Post up some Christmas colors.

Happy Holidays everyone.

I picked up a a couple red bikes and my first green one this year. Here's a few of mine.

Show off your holiday colored bicycles.

Oh, I thought you wanted two-toned red-and-green bikes, and I thought to myself that it would probably be a short thread.

Apologies for that. I just edited the title.

I suppose a 7-11 Merckx would be the perfect Christmas bike(imo).

That's what I thought, and as I'm both partial to that colour combination and not too lazy to post pics here are a few:

This Torpado has some brothers; pics of their frames follow, they are mostly built now, there is another chromovelato red-and-green frame not yet built but I don't have a pic of that one:




This one was crashed and two tubes replaced and then chromed and painted and built and hasn't been ridden:


It has a brother that does get ridden a lot:


And there is this teaser of a Girardengo half-built:

My helmet is off to those with red-and-green bikes. The best I can do is red-and-white or red-white-and-blue.
