Hi

My trusty restored 17" C16R frame is starting to rust from the inside out and I suspect a crack in the bottom bracket, sad times! Looking to replace with a 16" or 17" hardtail frame (preferably 1" threaded) so I can swap Manitou forks over. Or would consider a frame/fork combo in any size steerer, same size frame and hardtail.

Would preference something mid 90's an Orange or Kona as thats what I know, but open to others. Steel or Ali (would love Ti but don't think budget will stretch that far!) in good rider condition.

Would also consider a complete bike or unfinished project in same specs as above.

Let me know what you have, thanks.

Alex

Hi Alex,

I have a 96 Orange E3 frame available. Good condition but needs a polish. Decals are all good. Small size so 17" centre to top of seat tube. My number is 07976909026. I can WhatsApp pics if you like.

Thanks,

Mark

I must downsize so any interest in 1993 Orange Clockwork (1 inch obvs) or 1991 Rocky Mountain Hammer (1 and 1/8 but I also have some Mag 21s that would go with it)?


Can email pix if required

I just got this and I'm minded to move it straight on. 17" C2C Prestige tubing. Let me know if you're interested.

I can do mid nineties, 16”, aluminium frame, on it’s own or as a bundle with other bits, it’s almost identical to a Kona frame from the same era (but better in my opinion), it is however a full suspension bike. Not sure if that floats your boat or not.

Where abouts are you? I've got a 17" '92 Orange Prestige F+F, but the BB has got all the splines worn off, so it'll be a bit of a mission if you need to change it. It's orange and purple, bit scuffed, but any rust looks very minimal. The orange is pretty faded too.

I can get you more details if you are interested.
