    Here is just one reason to always bring a camera with you on your rides. I unfortunately didn't have one on today's ride. I saw a guy on the trail with a 1996 Catamount that was custom painted in the nineties a lime green with purple ano. parts throughout. Wouldn't you know it one of the few times I have been out without a camera and I run into the Holy Grail in old school fluorescent mountain bikes.

    Here's a picture of mine (although I have yet to see it). It's my first neon bike, if you pardon the neon stickers on my first Litespeed mountain bike ca. 1992.

    A very confusing statement: Here's a picture of mine (although I have yet to see it). Nice bike none the less.

    Raleigh Heat, from '92 I think. Full Shimano 7-speed LX with Rapidfire shifters. This was almost the first bike I purchased on my own. I was riding a Trek 800 that my folks bought me, and put one of these on lawaway at the LBS. Then I got a job at the same shop, and my purchasing power increased significantly. I ended up getting a S-Works Steel instead.

    And yeah, it's bright orange, so it belongs in here.

    Shogun Team Issue flash back. I still ride mine but it looks nothing like yours. Mine is pretty beaten up.

    Wow, this thread is giving me some serious flashbacks. I worked in bike shops from 1987 throught 1993, so I saw a LOT of these bikes in the shops I was in. The thing that killed me were the DiaCompe brake levers that came in a few neon colors. I actually have a set of black ones on an old beater that I've got. I'm going to be digging through the scrapbook to see if I can come up with any shots of my own, but the bike that really comes to mind was my buddy's Kuwahara BMX bike (we're talking 1985 here) that was all neon green and white. He had a hard time deciding between that and the orange one. What WERE we thinking back then

    Awesome!

    Not sure if this qualifies as Neon. Loud and obnoxious, definitely. But, Neon? Well you be the judge...

    Triple Triangle

    Triple Triangle in 87.... Wonder what came first the Shogun or the Egg (GT). Looks like a zaskar prototype

    Bump..

    I thought this thread needed some love, I could think of nothing less when I saw this recently. I'll see if I can get some pics of my Trek950 soon.

    Nice tribute color scheme. It's from this shop: http://www.flickr.com/photos/bluelug/
