Dan Coffey, a Southern California racer who rode for Pasadena AA in the 70's, had an absolutely awful paint scheme on his road bike. His frame was a bit tattered and non-descript, but he'd taken white paint and added what looked like dashes and dots and put "So What?" on the seatube.

I remember being at Las Vegas for a stage race and him coming by to hang out with us Carlsbad Bike Club guys (he later joined the club). Some of the guys were giving him a hard time about his bike's appearance and he said that by not having it painted, that he'd saved enough to get a track bike.

Wish I had a photo to post of it. It was ugly.
