Ok, so firstly i must thank sylus for pointing me in this direction, an ebay find which after some negotiation and costing me a few beer chits became my next project.
Bronze C16R ? Or is it ? Now i am no expert at identifying bikes but it does have some tell tale signs of being a C16R, and also a few that don't and point more towards being a P7?.
First of all a quick run down of the spec;
Orange Frame & F7 Forks finished in a Bronze/Gold colour. (Series 8 Tubing on the frame) Frame number is A4060336 (Note - Frame has round bottle mounts not diamond shape. Has Canti Mount on rear stay). Paint looks original.
Shimano LX 1" Headset
Shimano M735 Front and Rear Mech
Mavic 121 SUP Rims fitted to Hope Hubs Front & Rear, and dressed with alternating Red & Blue Spoke Nipples.
Middleburn Chainrings fitted to a bent Sugino Crank and Rocky Mountain Non Drive Side Arm.
Redline Beartrap Pedals
Innova Tyres Front & Rear
Orange SK8 Stem
USE Seatpost/Shim & Unknown Saddle
Tranz X Highrider Bars
Bit of a mixed bag but i am sure has some potential, let me know what you think. Any Orange Guru's out there please drop me a line
