Yo..

Finally got a retro ride sorted.. a 95 Clockwork.. Rigid with XT/LX mix in that kinda grim Silver/Blue combo..

It's sat in my Dad's shed in the UK and I should be picking it up in about a fortnight's night, cannot wait!

Just wondering if there are any other Clockwork/C17 owners out there who wouldn't mind posting a photo to get me thinking..

Also, with regards to paint jobs, who does everyone recommend? I recall a name being mentioned before.. Astra or something like it?

Hi mate,

I know the clockwork came in matt black, original orange and white and the blue/silver you have.

The challenge will be to find original decals...personally, I'd respray it orange and white again..but that's just me....how much did you get it for dude?

I was gonna go the black route.. The decals might be tough to find.. Hmm..

How much was it? I reckon my Dad might charge me a pint of Harvey's at his Local, The Lamb Inn :D

mines in the readers bikes section... matt black/rust combination.
the silver blue was stoped in 94. I know this because thats the colour i ordered and i had to respec it as my frame was delayed until feb95. hence its a c16 and not a clockwork.
