Also a fan of browns for bikes, and noticed a nice Ebisu in a nice cappucino color the other day.

My only brown bike is a '70 Raleigh Pro in the bown mink color they had.

What does the "mink" refer to in that Raleigh color? I used to think it was the brown color, but I see the blue Pros described as "mink" so it must refer to the pearl finish or the accomanpying silver color.
