    1990 Marin Team in some pretty sweet Neon Yellow/Purple with Neon Green forks. I also found a set of Neon Pink Grips.

    This stuff was all my dad's when he raced in the early 90's, he recent passed away, and I threw out some of this racing attire. A neon helmet, gloves, and some other old ratty clothing.

    The bike is more than enough Neon for me!

    I wonder if I can find Neon Spoke Nipples...

    Well you couldn't ask for a better matching saddle for that bike.

    The day I posted is the day I photographed them. Yes, they are in nice shape for about 1990/91 vintage. My wife has a set of the neon pink glasses and mine are the green. I wish I had a jersey to go with them.

    Yep, everything is stock 'cept the grips, tires, seat, and cable housings (although they could've been yellow for all i know )

    The grips are even Bio-Grip! Keepin' it period...

    Some good memories in this thread, I love that pink Ritchey and the old C-Dale almost didn't qualify until I saw the lime green fork. Let’s keep em coming enough with the shy embarrassed types.

    Probably already seen on another thread but now that I've finished it I thought it deserved to be here as well. The fork needed some love but now I hope to get it out in the coming days.

    Cool bike. I remember seeing that one in the mags when I was a young teenager. There were some neat photos of it if I recall. Retail price on that one was $787! Total bargain with its Prestige and full XT. I really liked it but ended up getting an MB-1 instead. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks for the warm welcome, guys.

    MBA really hyped-up the Shogun for its then unusually stiff, short and steep geometry (40" wheelbase and a 20" top tube on a 71/73.5 18" frame, if I recall). It climbs like six-legged goat, even weighing in at just under 30 Lbs., but it can be a handful on steep downhills.

    The Salsa bar and stem offered some welcome breathing room compared to the stubby OEM Tioga T-Bone, not to mention the teenager-on-Viagra erection angle it added to the bike's profile.

    My old riding buddy is still running his purple/pink/turquoise Shogun "Pro," sans any real maintenance short of squirting half a can o' chain lube all over the frame, and it keeps on ticking.

    Neon Pink Fat Chance Team Comp



    Just picked up this 1988(?) Neon Pink Metallic Fat Chance Team Comp.
    Need to change a few things that aren't my style like the bar ends, pedals and seat...
    Otherwise it's all original down to the NOS Ground Control tires. I would've preferred a different color, but a sweet ride in this shape doesn't present itself too often.

    would you rock these on a group ride?

    There was a time when I sported these shades. They have even seen race action back in 91 or so at mammoth. Could you see yourself sporting these today. The sad part is they were not cheap back then.

    Rascal

    Here's my old Klein Rascal in all it's neon glory. It was a beautiful bike, but just too small for me so I sold it a couple years ago. I hope it's somewhere out there getting ridden and taken care of.

    Actually the statement:

    .

    Was a quote from NA1NSXR that I thought was funny so I made it a sticky in my signature. Sorry I have never been to Connecticut nor does any wildlife from So. Cal. freak me out.

    Those shades look very familiar I had a pair of pink Gators that were made out of foam and designed for Jet Skiing, I can't believe I just admitted that.

    that was my 1990 kestrel csx, weighed around 20 lbs, broke so often i convinced kestrel they should give me two frames so i would always have one to race. my last straw was 1992 mount snow i showed up with a custom painted blue/purple with corresponding blue/purple anodized grafton/ringle set up. the bike was blue with purple anodized on the left, and purple with blue on the right. it was sweet, and took a pretty penny to get together (two sets of everything ). i rode the bike once on a pre ride lap, and blew out the bb (3rd time). i was so pissed. i got it replaced, sold both framsets and bought a rhygin!

    OMG look at those bars. Ha ha ha ha.

    Are those bars for real. That picture made my day. How many times did you crash with that rotten set up.
