Thought I'd try and do a thread to list all the stock colours for Orange clockworks. Please post below ifvyou know of a colour that I haven't mentioned below, and if you able to confirm dates forfeit of the less frequently used colours.

So.....
Orange and White fade (89 onwards?)
Black (92/93?)
Silver and purple fade
Silver and aqua blue fade
Lime green (99?)
Purple
(all) Orange
The yellow that looks like tartrazine(sunset? mid 90s?)
Off-white or pale grey?

I assume the really pale green one (+silver fork) seen on here is a respray or custom order instead of stock. Was pale blue used for c16r only? Or gold?

A 1999 10th anniversary colour option was a dark green (as per the Clockwork in my sig)

Not seen it used on any other year model so far

Good to see a thread on the Colours of Clockworks :) maybe someone could generate a definitive pictorial history, like what you see in Car Brochures :)

Anyway one question, Black??

Satin or Gloss??

My Clockwork is a Satin/Matt Black, but i've seen some in Gloss?

Anyone know the reason, or if this change fits into a time-line etc?

Cool. I've never seen gloss black or yellow&White! I didn't know pink&white was available on the clockwork either. My 93 frame is matt black, but may not stay that way as could do with a respray.

Any more?
