Austin , Texas , U.S.A. circa 1982 ( still easily within that "Classic Content" era ! )

that wild Benotto Tape ( so thin , so shiny )

You take at least two colors , more if you are really patient , making sure that the colors are the wildest possible combination , and tape up your handlebar in some interesting manner .

Stripes , as on a candy-cane , or as on a barber-pole , are easy .

Diamonds take a bit more practice .

Two bicycles that I will always remember : Italiano colors ( also Mexicano ) Red - Green - White & just simply shocking colors ( something like ) Pink - Turquoise - Lemon
