Not an expert but this looks a bit special compared to your average Orange. A bit ropey but complete.

Could be a Formula. Has the same cross bracing at the rear as one i have.
But that's the only similarity I can see (aside from paint colour).

My first thought was thst it was an '89 Clockwork frame .
Could be a production Formula though, I'll await the opinions of more expert Orange fans than me though...

Seen it and asked if they have a bin price. Looks just like the formula that turned up before.

I'd say almost certainly a Formula. Someone please buy this and take that rack and lock off this A.S.A.P., they're making me wince looking at them on that bike!
Pretty terrible pictures unfortunately to get a good look at it.

A Yates-built bike judging by the cross-brace on the seat stays. I’ve a Yats tandem with the exact same detail. Just down the road from me this one 8)

Pretty sure it’s a separate bike. That one was lugged. This looks brazed

The plot thickens. Seems a hybrid of various others.
