Unfortunately I cant be hero of the day there as I was in quite a hurry to get rid of my own when I had it !! Used to let my buddy ride it whilst I rode his preferred batterd up Cinder Cone !! Nice ride back then!

Got saddle sorted now Jez so no worries on that front dude..

Correcting what I said earlier I think it's a little later - probably '94 - '95. The first aluminium Orange was the 'O' in '91 then the later 'Elite' in '92 (f+f = £640 then). Then came the E2 (Elite '2' presumably?).

Thanks for all the replies guys, just need to get a price from him.

All I need now is to find a group-set, seatpost, seat, bars, stem, wheels, tyres :roll:

Hey, Ali O? I had one and it rode great. Looked great. 150mm stem and all :)
Dropouts are like solid ingot. It was the first Alu Orange. The Elite was next.


£150 sounds cool, but the orange and white is the mutts for me. Until all the paint flaked off and I polished it spangly 8)
Would jump at that Jez, but just used my browny points for getting a new roadie bike. Not Sure the wife could accept number 7 in the garage. Bless.
