    I think it's pretty cool that some of the manufactures are offering neon options on new rides.
    INTENSE for one.

    A suggestion before the viewing of this thread.
    It's so bright you need shades.

    1990s Neon colors & Bar Ends for bikes:
    The dominant youth clothing fad at the beginning of the 1990s was fluorescent or dark colors[citation needed]. Fluorescent clothing was associated with cool, summer themes like surfing and the beach. The five fluorescent colors were blue, green, orange, pink, and yellow.
    Fluorescent clothing was especially popular with teenage and pre-teen girls, but fluorescent t-shirts and shorts were also popular with boys. Fluorescent clothing included t-shirts, sweatshirts, socks, shoelaces, hair scrunchies, and fanny packs. Hypercolor clothing, made of material which changes colors according to temperature, also came into fashion during the early 1990s. In 1991
    fluorescent colors were replaced by colors such as coral, hot pink, and turquoise. The popularity of bright colors declined through 1995. Hoop earrings were also a popular accessory for teenaged girls and women in the first years of the 1990s. Bar Ends for bikes also was all the rage. They were a fad that left the scene in the late 1990s. Which to some was not soon enough.

    How about posting up some old photos of these beloved rigs........

    Oh God, is that truly an '85?! IF so, that's one of the rarer ones, and one I have wanted for a decade.

    Niiiice!

    Yes sir it is. Basically unused. Unbelieveable condition. Found at an estate sale in Northern Idaho. I really like the ride of this one compared to the 83/84 biplane fork stumpies I've had. I wonder if it took a couple of years to fix the mistakes that Ritchie put into those first bikes he sold to Mike Sinyard?

    Picked this up a few weeks ago for the parts, but it's grown on me, so I'm going to sort it out and keep it. Left the seat on for the pic for S&Gs. Will have to dig out that old curmudgeon Rumphy's address and send it to him. Should be embarrasing when he opens it in front of his co-workers.

    Why would he be embarrassed? Because it matched his suit?

    Be sure to include the reflectors you sonofa*****.

    And lets be honest, my co-workers have seen me in a lot more embarrassing situations. :p

    There's no way I'm throwing in the reflectors. I will entertain serious offers, however.........
