I think the old Molteni (orange bike, navy blue panel, yellow "Eddy Merckx") is classic.

Also Gios-torino blue with white panel.

Any favorites that would look great on a road bike from any era (including ours). Post pictures if possible.

I knew of someone 'round here who used to have a bike fitting that description.

I couldn't afford to take it off his hands at the time.

dedicating his energy and work in this forum to save red classic bikes from being sold to strangers. it's a beautifull story.

No white panels and painted fork like mine except I have the chrome fork.

After that, Faema team bike built by Faliero Masi and ridden by Merckx which was white with red panels.

And then, Richard Sachs, painted by Joe Bell, red with white panels.
