Back to my increasingly odd 'Formula 753' - a reputable local NW bike shop that stocked Orange BITD, suggest that Orange may not have had the accreditation to weld up 753 tubesets in the early or mid Nineties - which, if true, may well mean my frame was made elsewhere... add that to the Clockwork faded paint scheme being outsourced... does that lead the complete bike to be manufactured at Bob Jacksons maybe???? They also recalled a female team Orange rider suffering a serious injury on an all aluminium road bike - perhaps the 'Dynamo' - featured in the '93/94 catalogue (in our very own archive!) -

To this day I have never seen a 'Dynamo'... was it recalled perhaps??
