Hello everyone !

I am looking for information on the assembly of an Orange Aluminum Elite (1993).
And of course I will need to find the parts in good condition to run on this pretty machine.

Fork, handlebar, seat post, a good wheelset and Orange components would be welcome.
Thank you for your help and for your reasonable proposals.

Yours truly

The Flying Frenchman

This build is intended to be based on my 17" 1993 Orange Elite for now.

Trebz,

Trebz

I take the frame and, I look for a fork, a headset.

Thank you, please give me your opinion on a reconstruction based on Shimano M738.

I'd also like to find original parts, because I like what I read about this bike very much.

See you soon

I found a matching 1 1/4 Orange Aluminium fork complete with a polished finish Answer A-Tac bar stem in my loft which The French might be taking :-)

My loft never ceases to amaze me, it's like Pandora's box.
