Very nice bike, I didn't know that Orange made road bikes, thought they only did MTB! How old is it?

''The seller says it was made as a one-off for him in '93 by none other than Steve Wade - that the original owner used to ride with Wade was confirmed by none other than our own Cannondale King...!''

They had a road racing team in the early 90's with Jonny Clay and Chris Young.

good work there LGF.
where did you get the coloured outer casing? Coloured cables used to be a big decorative item. these days it seems to be campag/shimano black or grey only.
I've possibly still got an unused blue coated gear cable somewhere. But one only, not pair I'm afraid. Worth me looking? Would be FOC.
