Not sure if it is actually a P7 (was resprayed before I got it, and those were the stickers...!), but I've had it for about 11 years, through many many different builds & a hell of a lot of abuse! It's now rigid again, for the first time in 10 years, so I've not yet painted the forks as I'm not sure how I'll like it yet! :)

See, now despite all the Fats, Sling Backs, Fimbles and exotica around, I still don't think you can beat a well put together Orange.

P.S. How about a 'Made in Britain' bike of the month comp.?? :D

Ta! I was expecting comments about how hideous the forks look, more than compliments :lol:

Assuming I like em, I'll probably paint them orange, but maybe black or grey... :?

Pace forks always look good on Orange frames, absolutely no exception here
