Those orange wildgrippers seem to go for decent money

Am no expert but prob get £80 for forks ( if elastomers ok etc maybe same for the tyres,don't know about the wheels rest seams pretty run of the mill.)
As for the frame it's not as saughtafter as a early clockwork/prestige/alu O/ elite first vit T
Which is when orange were at there best I feel personally

Am sure I will get shot down in flames but those were the ones I grew up with as a 13/4/5 year old reading mags etc.

Am sure you could sell the frame but would you get say another £70/80?
Plus the hassle and time of stripping it.

the forks are borked - in need of a service and new elastomers.

is worth whatever someone will pay. TBH there are plenty of Oranges out there and a late C16r is hardly a rare find. the frames go from anywhere from £30 - 80. TBH I'd only pay this kinda silly money for a 19 late 93/early 94 in plum purple which is my favorite

Nah - not unless you really want some mid range kit and a set of seized forks, which you could probably get cheaper elsewhere..................
