As promised, a couple of shots of my wife's '97. Retromod it is. Still some choice components about - LX from all eras, XT Vs, RC-36, Thomson stem, X-Lite risers, Klein Grips (:shock: )
Good spoiler on the back as well
Nice! I'm doing something kinda similar....
I just purchased a '95(?) C16R with F7 fork that I'll be rebuilding this weekend with (sacreligeous content warning) a 2010 XT groupset and mounting a Bobike Mini baby seat on the stem.
Here's a pic of said bike in all its clapped-out Alivio-draped glory, with junky steel wheels, from the auction photos. Though I'll be swapping out the Orange branded stem and bars for something with more sweep, I'll be keeping them in a box and hopefully getting it back in mtb mode sometime soon....
Oh, by the way, it now has primer on the BB shell as heat was needed to remove the old bottom bracket. Goddammit!
Loving the pics of your C16R's, folks! I'm glad to be a new member of the club
