What colours were factory original for the Clockwork?

I'm aware of;

Orange/White
Purple/Silver
Black

Please correct me if I'm wrong and feel free to add. I'm on the hunt and would like to recognise original paint when I sees it.

Depends on age.

Orange 'began' in '86, Tushingham, the 'All Round Range', 'O-Range', then 'Orange' and all that... but they first made frames under the Clockwork name in late 88. Before that it was the Tushingham B52.

Originally yellow/white and orange/white. Then pink/white was introduced. Next was black.

Then after 92 it all went a bit pear shaped...with some odd colours - purple etc

Yes, purple came in after black (late '92) then in addition plain orange, silver, silver/blue in '94 IIRC.

there was a matt orange clockwork in about 91. Before the prestige was released. Cool colour too.
