I'm surprised you've not come across them before Malc. As ridden by Mandy Jones at Goodwood I believe.

Recently refurbished an Orbit Thompson, from what I could find out he built frames for them in the late 80’s and they used his name on the frames, had Orbit embossed seat stay caps and Thompson down tube and seat tube decals - you can get repro decals from HLloyd. Was a full Reynolds 531c frame, nice ride. Have some pics if you’re interested.

Couple of pics of the frame after I stripped it and the finished bike, was originally dark blue with red and black Thompson decals but paint was really bad unfortunately as it was a nice colour.
