A search of the web throws up nothing really, and the 1999 Catalogue on here only lists dimensions. Though does have a nice pic.


Anyone know what the orignal specs would have been ?, price, colours etc.

Perhaps someone has a review in an old mag I could borrow.

Many thanks in advance

Thanks for that....there really is very little on the internet for these models.

I was hoping that a the full spec options wouldbe available.
Though no doubt the options will be the same as the rest of the range really.

So if anyone can help with what I am likely to expect from a midrange Orange of the period.

I did have one of the first MsIles, but cannot remember the spec..

LX, Manitou somethings, and I put Hs33 racellines on..I think :oops:
