    Not completely neon, but this Attitude is BRIGHT in the rear. Also, as posted above, a picture of one of my "Race Red" Mantra Pro's - I rode the other one for years as a single speed, and out on the trails, even on cloudy days, that thing GLOWED red like no Ferrari I have ever seen... no one believed the paint was 10 years old... BRIGHT.

Mondia frames from 1960s - 1980s were well known for their "wild" multi-color paint jobs. Mondia appears to be in business at Mondia Fahrrad AG, Sagetstr. 116, 4802 Strengelbach". My buddy that owns the LBS has a serious Mondia fetish, he says his Mondia Special road frame is the best riding bike he's ever ridden.
    During the 80's Mondia also was the official swiss distributor of Kuwahara bikes, SunTour components and Kawasaki motorbikes.
    While Cilo was responsible for distribution of Shimano stuff.
    The 2 big names in swiss bikebusiness back then.
    What ou can see in Strengelbach today (about 15 km from my place) won't impress you too much.

    I bow down to you Rody...that bike is fabulous and if one like it popped up on ebay I'd be dipping into the kid's college fund to put it in my garage.

    Well, you guys know that I could dig up a thing or two, both equipment and apparel, that might have a bit of neon. But I harken back to the "Look at this friggin dork" thread and I quote rryyddeerr:

    [SIZE=4]I hope im dead before neon bikes come back into fashion.

    [SIZE=2]Pen-Goo-Wee-Noo[/SIZE]
    [/SIZE]
    Looking for:
    • Bontrager Comp crown, 1" threaded
    • Syncros Revolution, drive side 172.5

    uh, oh, If I we're you, I would'nt say that, cause most people in the industry think that Neon will make a big comeback sometime soon. If you look at some recent BMX and Dirt Jump parts, it's already knocking on the front door...

    Greetings,

    Michael

    I think it's up north in my mom's garage but I actually have a hammerhead bar/stem that glows in the dark. Too ugly to put on a bike but too cool to repaint.

    Oh what he heck. As long was we all promise to learn from the errors of our past. Here's me in my neon team jersey on my neon green Diamond Back Axis Team. I still have a nearly new and bright jersey and skinsuit as well as a faded jersey and skinsuit. And yes, there's a mullet under that Giro Prolite. I was working the porn 'stache too.

    Authorities speculate that speed may have been a factor. They are also holding gravity and inertia for questioning.

    Yeah I suspect that this is the reason why most of the people on this board are afraid to post up thier pictures. Come on people the time frame was neons ago, we will forgive you.

    Pinky, pinky, parlez vous

    Here is a wall hanger. I have the wheels for this bike as well, Sachs drums of course with the 2x7 rear. So at one point it was a 3 x 14 all french drivetrain back in the day when it could be done but no one was doing it. Probably for good reason as it wasn't all that great a system, but I felt like I was sticking it to Shimano every stroke of the pedals! Well actually not quite all French as I used a Suntour thumbie to work the 2 spd.

    The tooldip stem, AT bars, S&R post with a yellow Turbo and cable housing to top it off. It was the heighth of fashion in its day. The pink powdercoat was done concurrently with a friends beachbuggy undercarriage and is still annoyingly bright to this day.

    Can anyone guess what the original color of this frame was?

    A bike by any other name is still a bike.

    Is the Axis Team still in your stable? I have the Axis from the same year, but, sadly, it's only splatter-paint over black and not neon enough for this thread...
