Hi, I know the point of these threads is to follow the build, but hey, I've just finished my Orange P7 which was a pile of rust left in a garden for an age when I got it. I spent ages cleaning the lacquer off and polishing up, so you might say it was a labour of love - I am really pleased with the result. Would like to know what you all think. Spec is as folows.

1994 Orange P7 frame

Shimano STX SE crank
Shimano STX RC front & rear mechs,
Shimano STX lever shifter combos
Shimano STX headset
Orange Hot Rod bars
Girvin FlexStem
Alex rims, Shimano STX hubs
Geox Sedona 200 Green-wall tyres
Shimano Deore LX Cantis and pedals
Orange seatpost
Genesis saddle

It rides really well and I just finished it today, so not really had a chance to test it hard, just round the block!, that's a job for this week!

File comment: Taken tonight just before it went dark.

Nice. Could do with a bigger pic!
1" flexstems seem like rocking horse poo these days, so nice to see one being used.
