Toc bikes look sharp in black and nickel, and with black you don't have the headache and guilt involved in attempting to match the original colour. Still, I've been thinking of building one bike that is not black. The 1918 CCM catalogue lists colour options like French grey, with blue or red sunburst head; green with gold stripes; and road cart red.

Recently I found this period photo of a rather stern looking woman atop a bike that could have been French grey although it's hard to tell with a black and white photo. If you have an og paint toc bike or come across an old photo of one, please post pics here!

1895 "KENMORE" - - I'm not sure what color this was called as I have never found an ad or catalogue on the Kenmore ( made 2 yrs )

Original paint and striping. Grips cut back as only the racers did this. Bars are the rare "Halladay" adjustable.

It looks pretty close to my Pierce in what I believe the Pierce Catalogs refer to as carmine
