Searched all over the net and couldn't find anything at all. Anyone know where to see 'em damn bikes? I am interested in paint scheme and cyrillics primarily. Anybody can help out? Track bikes would be just fine.
Thank you

well, the girl is russian. Kinda obvious because she is so good looking, hehe. The bike is obviously russian too. Its probably a touristy style made out of hi tensile steel tubing to which you attach fenders and a rack, so much for the revolutionary idea of the righthanded rear brake caliper ;-)

See ya

them russian's know whats important.

speaking of which. i had to bail on a ebay auction for a long sleeve cinelli russian jersey. the cccp letters were large and prominent on the back in red except for the 1st c which was the cinelli c with wings in white. it was the coolset thing i had ever seen. but it was going for crazy money at the end of auction and i wasnt sure about the size so i gave up at around a $120. now i wish i didnt as long sleeve jerseys all look alike.

this might help

They rode mostly Colnago's, road and track during the last 20 years or so of the Soviet regime. Solid colors, some with white seat and down tube panels.
