Jesper's '72/'73 Crescent Pepita

Sorry for a repeat, entered a couple months ago; but I like orange too so keeping with the informal theme that has developed. My next build (mid '70s Chesini Super Special) is not quite there (not orange either) due to extreme difficulty finding some original design decals (remnants are not sufficient for reproduction purposes; any ideas are welcome).

I readily see 3 front runners for my vote; great bikes folks!

All bikes should be orange!

Alright, I'll play. :)

I bought this frame set three weeks ago: Union "Rini Wagtmans". These frames were supplied by Gianni Motta in '76-'78 to the Union-Freetime cycling team, of which Rini Wagtmans, a former pro, was the manager.

Built it up quickly - sorry, no build thread - to have it ready for Eroica Germania last weekend:

Just when I thought we exhausted the "orange crush"! Nice to see an old 3 speed amongst the thoroughbreds.

Thoroughbreds? I know its not orange and always had delusions of grandeur but you've just made my BSA's day
