Curious ‘Orange’ road bike for MTB completists! Huge oneupmanship status guaranteed!

Bought secondhand from a bike shop in Halifax many years ago, not identified by anyone at Orange on subsequent enquiry, despite original-looking factory decals and paint. Reynolds 753 tubing - was originally built with full Shimano 600 tricolour. Maybe a team rider’s training bike built elsewhere (Bob Jackson/Leeds may have painted 'Clockworks' etc around the probable time of build)??

Not mint but pretty good - no structural damage.

Sizing:

57cm (22 1/2") C2C
60cm (23.75") BB centre to top of seat tube

Selling frame/fork/wheels/cogset/bb/headset/crankset/front mech only.

No stem/brakes/tyres/rear mech/bars/shifters/saddle/seatpost/pedals etc.

Reduced to £250 posted within the UK.

Keep coming back to this but it's unlikely I'll have the spare cash for the next month or so. Do you have anything retro you would be after in PX?

Isn't the sticker on the left side of the seat tube, the wrong way round?

This is class, absolutely lovely fork.

Sacrilege but would look great sympathetically built with a modern black groupset, black post/stem/bars.

Not asking for me but taking it the seatpost is a standard size?
