Cable routing points towards a 92/93 onwards model but rear canti hanger means it's no later than 96. Reckon it may have been resprayed by Orange around Y2K hence the later headbadge. Looks good though.

I'd go with it being a respray by Orange. That's the same paint colour as my '99 E4 with the same head tube badge too.

Very sweet bike though. 8)

What a superb bike! It's obviously a more recent respray and a non-original colour, but so what? It looks great.

Sorry, the Formula was black, may not have been clear. There was a matt orange clockwork too. Will try and dig out the pics.

Are they not RC-35s then?

Haven't even seen a set for years so can't really remember what they look like! :oops:

I think they are from looking around, but I reallly don't know suspension forks. Everything was nice and firm in my day. :wink:

Well this went for nearly £260 + p&p, which was more than I was willing to splash out. Anyone from here?

Sorry-this is a bit late, forks are 1996 Monobox MXCD, without the additional oil damper by the look of it. :D
