You could definitely still get orange/white fade at the beginning of the 1993 model year. Check out the MBUK that introduce the 1993 Shimano LX groupset, hung off a orange /white fade and the various examples using the same decals as yours rather than the classic ones.

Great project. 8)


Shit, that means this build probably just increased in cost a tad :roll:

The black with orange decals is very cool, but the dayglow orange/white is a classic look imho.

I'll probably build it pretty much as a bike of that era would've been run after a couple of years of use & abuse - so an XTR mech here, a USE seatpost there....

Great to see the yellow sparkle Clockwork again – love that!

Mine originally came in an 'uber' dark green with a teal sparkle...

Few bits sorted. Lucky a seller had a set of 28/32h F/R XTR hubs to match my NOS 28 & 32h Ritchey hoops

I'm looking forward to seeing this develop. Everyone should own a Clockwork at some point.

Think I need another.

I recognise that short sleeved jersey too. Pleased to hear you'll soon have a bike to go with it. :D
