Hey peeps

Its my first time on these forums and am looking for some help from you good people in cyberland.

I am the proud owner of a battle scared clockwork which purple and orange! it is still pretty much original ie Suntour XC comp, SS7's with 987's, orange lite seat post and orange ram rod single peice bars. the only peice that has been changed is the saddle as i keep falling off! (i think that is just age catching up) :oops:

Anyway i dont know how old the bike is and was wondering if you good people could help??

Thanks

Welcome welcome welcome (and beware! This place is bad for the wallet).

I'm not an authority on Orange, so not much help there. Posting pics is good though, that always helps.

I bought my purple with orange fade on the stays and fork legs clockwork back in 92, not sure if it was available after this.

Purple / Orange / Purple was avalible in 1993 for sure!

Pics please as geometry and decals will tell more than colour scheme will with Oranges.

MMM, Me thinks 1992/1993.
1991 had a more off set top tube to wishbone seat stay. Late 1993/1994 got top tube cable routing and block graphics.


IMHO :wink:
