I first saw this frame when I bought brocklander's 2007 Clockwork a couple of years ago. Somehow knew it would end up here eventually!

Forks have been refurbished (rapidly and very nicely) by justbackdated - thanks Tim- and I've got a nice selection of Suntour parts to go on it - mostly XC Pro.

Had some debate about the saddle, but leaning towards a San Marco Rolls at the moment. Have a black and grey Orange one and a flite, but the San Marco is probably better suited to my broadening beam!

Love this era for Orange. I have been saving some DX for something like this or prestige. Has it been powder coated cos it looks sweet?

Rolls would look great I reckon. Looking forward to see it progress.

Good to see you've started it Daz and like the Suntour plan 8)

Frame was powder coated at Triple S in Bingley Duke. Tange decal rescued from original frame and the rest from Gil. :wink: Loved how this one rode.
