Nice to see another Ally Orange
First off, your Orange should build up into a very nice bike with not a lot of cash and is more then capable of holding it's own against modern bikes.
You could do a completely retro build or a modern one, or if it's to be in regular use maybe a bit of both.
With the kind of budget you're talking about you could easily resore the big O and still buy a new bike for every day (maybe a new big O to match
) If you wanted to.
Finally, for Â£2000 you could get hold of a good example of any of your dream bikes, maybe a couple of the 'cheaper'
Oh, and if you did decide to sell up and start again.
You'll make much more selling it as parts.
