I'm just trying to follow the rules....."PURPLE" and one must think that since this is the Bike of the Month thread that a "Purple" bike should win. Not something Ink blue, blue, pink or even a bike that's 40% blue, 40% pink and maybe 20% purple. Certainly not something that only has purple parts on it?
When I think of purple in conjunction with vintage retro mountain bikes I dont think of paint. I think of those beautifull little bits and pieces we were all guilty of collecting back in the day.
The thread did not say Purple Paint.
Rather I feel that a bike that truly reflects the spirit and theme of "purple"
is one like kase1983's Kona. Yes it may be a black paint job. But I hardly notice the paint . My eye is drawn to the shiny stuff.
I have a exceptionally nice and original purple paint job on another ride. But I chose to post a pic of my Neon Lime green Alien. Because the purple just seems to POP! I obviously have no intentions of obtaining any votes against comptetion like this. I assumed that many of the lurkers here like myself just want to see some bikes.
So relax and enjoy the pics for cring out loud!
Sucker for ano!
