Hey guys, a quick introduction..............
I'm Mick, and I'm an alcoholic!


Ok now that's out of the way, down to the nitty gritty.
I discovered a pure shed find, courtesy of a good friend of mine.
A 1999 Orange Mr.XC (disc mounts)
I've decided to have a go rebuilding this bike, as I like the look if it, and there aren't many about now.
It's currently stripped raw, and I'm currently rubbing the light scratches away, I'm a little stumped on te final finish, but I'm in no hurry. one thing that bothers me though, is that, in googles library pics of the bike, they all seem to have a decal on the cross bar, ahead of the Mr.XC decal, now I can't zoom in early enough to make it out, and my bike doesn't have it, can anyone help me by telling me what it is? I'm having some original decals made up from dnfive graphics, and he's asked me what it is. Please help, because I get the idea, to make it worth his while, he only wants to make a complete set of decals, and the ones I rescued from my bike are apparently not complete. I'll try this pic malarkey
Thanks for all the help you've unknowingly provided to me as a none member or a 'lurker' and thanks in advance for this little stunt ;-)

You have :lol:

I too have a 99 MrXc, love it to bits!

The decal you are talking about is a bowling ball (looks like an orange logo) with a couple of go faster stripes after it.

When I get time, i'll get you a pic.

(Feel free to PM me if I forget :lol:)

Have you been in touch with Orange?

They have good stocks of decal sets.
