I've had a look today, frame seems to me a '90 Clockwork Orange in rare colour. The current owner build it up himselve those days with low quality components as you can see. Exage 300LX, steel rims, etc.

But the frame is in pretty good condition. Some slight tiny rust spots here and there from what I can see but most should be able to recover with some TLC. Couldn't find any major damage.

Isn't yellow/white a very rare combination? I've never seen it actually..

If you need any help collecting, let me know!

Wow. Never seen one that colour, that's nearly as cool as the white pink ones !

How much does the seller want for it out of interest?

I remember them in Yellow, I think it could be an '89

Looks sweet

Certainly quite early as I think Airevalley moved (for the first time :roll: ) around 1991. Frame looks like a 89 or 90.

Either way, it needs to live at my house. :wink:

You sorted on this then ?
I've been ummming and arrring.
It's too big though I think.

Has troje seen the Rocky Mountain experience in Halifax?

Could be a good collect/ swap / exchange type thing.

This evening I collected this bike and had a closer look. Actually I'm still puzzled why such a high quality frame is equipped with low grade components. Just look at the brakes, the steel rims, the Exage 300LX groupset, I just can't get it. Nevertheless the frame is in pretty good condition!

Serial number on the bottom bracket tells A89124481, which should indicate this to be either an '89 or a '90 bike.
