Looking good.

Nice choice of fork too. You don't see many with a Girvin, although they were an option from Orange & at least one of their team riders used them (Can't recall who it was now).

Spitoon (Not on the site anymore) had an E3 with Girvin fork.

I've responded to your PM. - I'd forgotten I'd tried to reply on my phone but it often doesn't work for some reason.

I'll bell you at some point over the week. :wink:

Always thought one of these would look good in black with orange decals or the more common ball burnished with girvins for the "Sam Cook" look of the Orange Race Team catalogue pics!
