Epi Color Reference

  1. I'm really loving my Epi speedy and am not so knowledgeable on it.
    I thought we could start a thread documenting the different colors. If you could post a color and the approximate year that would be great! Pics would be wonderful too!
     
  2. Lovely idea, Twiggers! Here is my 2006 Red Epi Speedy 25(Rouge 2--new red) with Silver Hardware and made in 2004 Black Epi Soufflot with discontinued gold/brass hardware...

    The Epi line was introduced in 1986.

  6. Great idea!! I still don't know what genius decided to discontinue lilac....:crybaby:
     
  7. that's toledo? it looks like myrtille to me.
     
  8. So the epi speedy 25 really does exist? I haven't been able to find one - also, do you happen to know how much $ it is? Thanks everyone - you are my gurus!
     
  9. There's also that something gold colour...I don't remember what the first word is, but it starts with a "C", it reminds me of fawn, but it' more gold-toned, of course.
     
  10. oMIGOSH! Twiggers, i love your writings! Always informative!
    I just started a thread asking someone to shed some light on the epi speedy, the black in particular, it would be BEYOND to have ONE thread to reference everything we know about the epis and their tell tale signs of authenticity.
