Following on from my request for ultegra tricolour build pics viewtopic.php?f=12&t=391963

I'm now looking for pics of pink/lavender/lilac/purple or similar road bikes....

Anyone got any they'd like to post?

New project lined up and I think I know where it's going, but I need inspiration!

My Bob Jackson Vigorelli, just built it up so I'll get a better picture for you when the weather improves.
Lighter purples are a bold choice but with the right components can be pulled off IMO

Both very nice! Fossala's BJ is about the colour I have in mind, maybe I'd go a little lighter. Parts will be ultegra 6400 tricolour. The incoming project has chrome rear end and lugs, and a chrome fork (when I find one)

Here’s my Peugeot competition 3000, with Tiagra 4700 and some Ultegra wheels.

You probably won't find anything as purple and pink as this monster! In my defence it was sufficiently cheap to justify buying it!
