Picked up this Orange Aluminium Elite a few weeks ago.

The frame and original forks stripped and polished up nicely, thread here

1-1/4" Headset and stem on the way. Decals recreated just need to get printed.

The canties and wheels don't match but I'll keep them for now until I have the funds to replace.

Yes it did, I used wet & dry, wire wool, rubbing compound and autosol for the shine.

I'm pleased with it, looking for a bung for the top now.
