This is not going to be one for BOTM but it is my build thread for my P7, well one I'm building for my husband, a bit too large for me.

It starts with I believe a '94, 19.5" Orange P7 frame with F7 forks. I have manged thanks to guys on here to have got Orange seatpost, bars and stem.

This is by no means a obsessive compulsive build and I hope it does not disappoint anyone. It's intention is so my hubby can get out there for a bit of mountain biking instead of his usual road stuff with some biking colleagues

Here is the first pic, the frame and forks

Not the best pic but hopefully I'll learn to use the camera as I build the bike

Probably right, I wonder if the mods could move it

Looks a great project developing there!

Yours is probably a 1995 and 21" frame (measured C-T) :D

Yes it is a size 21, but it's a 96 (95 had braze-on seat clamp).

It won't be a pricey build and I canny afford to re-lacquer it, but I'll try to make it look nice, I'll look into making the frame look really nice at a later date
