Its name is proudly displayed as a custom decal on the chainguard. It is a Laguna Indian phrase meaning "Once upon a time".

My LOOK KG281 is called 'Kermit'.

If you can't figure out the connection then there's no point explaining it.

It's green? No, no, let me try again. You were a big Lakers fan in the 70s and Kermit Washington was your favorite player? Wrong again? Let's see, the bike was made in Fr . . . Oh, OK. Good night, everyone!

It's a Zeppelin, so I had to go with a Led Zep' tune, and Stairway to Heaven is way too overdone.

Second that.

Late '80's Bianchi - The Beauty (Lugged steel, Celeste...)

Early '90's Trek 2300 - the Beast. (CF, bright green fork, neon yellow stays... you got a better name?)

And if I'm a Fred for naming my bike, so be it. At least I'm riding.

The color shift paint job appears as a metaphor for life...always changing depending on how you look at it.
