It sure is a beautiful bike, a very tasty build and a great rolling advert for the guys at Graphics Shack


Thanks hydra, (hope the kleins getting ther bud... 8) )

I cant disagree a great finish to the frame, and big KUDOS to garry and the boys for a stirling effort, and i can report the paint work is holding up extremely well with use....!!!

ROLLING ADVERT..............i really hope i did a good job, refinishing the whole thing as a rolling advert for ORANGE more so to be honest.

it was a well designed frame built into a great affordable package that became the working mans racer..., and for me a colour scheme this made it stand out from the crowd and help it become an British mountain bike icon......( ok maybe im being a tad patriotic in a retrobike kinda way..... 8) )


does anyone else have a clockwork or had one............???? post up your pics............, be proud............lets see them....we gotta love them....!!!!

Good work !
Had a clockwork back in the day. It was the classic orange and white with Ritchey Logic cranks and dx bits. Can't find any pics I'm afraid.
I do have a '93 frame waiting to refurbished and built up into something modest for my wife, though.

I do like your choice of forks, as my memory is that the orange forks were quite flexible and din't help the steering.
