    Yes, and my father drove a Citroen GS and a Mercedes 230E in such colours during these years. In France it was very popular. I remember also a lot of Renaults, Peugeots and Simcas. And of course many of the US cars.

    Ralf, I seem to remember that Opel used some rather bright green(s) at that time. Those were the days when Opel had its own distinct identity with its Rekord, Manta etc.

    A good choice! I like that look very much. Back in the seventies we had also a lot of cars running in that colours. Always my favorites. Now they are coming back slowly, but since then they disappeared completely. Your pictures deserve a place in their gallery:

    Thanks Ralf. The pattern is one that Mercian have done many times but the particular colours were my choice. Up close, it is quite spectacular.

    Nice colours. Typical 1979. A beauty.

    My latest bike project - a 1979 Mercian "King of Mercia" extensively repaired and re-finished by Mercian Cycles in Derby, England. It cost me a ton of money but is worth every penny.

    Ridden for the first time 10 days ago.

    The snow was a short interlude, totally gone after a few days. :-)
    It's actually not a real SUV, just a high "combi".

    At least there must be a reason to justify driving a Swedish SUV.

    What! Snow in Sweden? Then you should have been here - in Norway!

    Thanks Tommi. I have added a second photo to give a better indication of just how clean this bike is, and how new it appears to be, despite being just under 40 years old!
