Was there any "regulation" color for the bicycles used by the NVA ?VC for supply carrying? Only color photo I found was at the US Army Transportation Museum. The flash had the thing looking more colors than Joseph's Technicolored coat.

Merci, Frenchy. Looks like rust was the base color. Did they end up at the wrong end of an Arc Light strike? Some of it looks almost like a German Dunklegelb. I'm tinkering with the Dragon Viet Cong set. (Need the figures for another project. Figured I'd build up the bike and female VC for grins and giggles)

I don't think they had a regulation color ! ! they used what ever they could beg borrow or steal.
