I'm pretty sure that in his World's medal-winning year Hammond rode an Orbit frame made in the Brierley Hill workshops
It was indeed an Orbit, one of which was finished in bright pink, now whether all of his bikes were pink I have no idea?
I was there, & also still have the 'Cycling Weekly' with him on the cover.
He used bar-end shifters, no STI for him
Can't tell if they were 653, or 753 though as the stickers are partially hidden
He did, however, use the old pattern SIDI shoes (blue/black, with a flap over the laces) that were drilled for SPD's
Sorry Scanner playing up, so can't put the relevant pics on here.
