Which brings up a question that has probably been answered before here, but I didn't see it: what companies have a particular color closely associated with their bikes (and what's the color)?

Bianchi has celeste, Gios blue, Richard Sachs would appear to favor red, I always think of Benottos in a sort of silvery beige (which I'm sure that they had a name for.)

What other companies have such recognizable colors?
