Mainly the fact that whoever wrote the advert seems to have no clue whatsoever about the bike; always says to me that they might have happened across it somehow.

Not sure it's even an Orange? If it is it isn't a 5.

I now were you are coming from, although i must say orange did make some grose looking frames in the old days, so it wouldnt suprise me if it was a real one, and you say he does'nt know much about the bike, IMHO he must'nt know much about bikes fullstop.....if he bought that thing!!! :wink:
Sorry guys but i just hate Orange bikes, expensive rubbish, i don't care how local they are to me ( 100yds from my house ) i would'nt buy one.

It looks very "orange" without being anything I recognise!

The rear swing arm is almost identical to the early (2000) sub 5, 3 etc and the down tube looks almost like the recognisable box section.

I cant remember seeing the brace on the top tube / seat tube before??

Almost!

Plus, why put hope wheels and Middleburns on some rubbish, it must be Orange in some form. . . . . .right? :lol:
