Thought I'd make it three old school Oranges in a day,

Sorry for bad photo, I'm at my parents and thought I'd take a pic of my Orange Prestige but only got my phone with me.

Bike hadn't been touched for years. Paintwork is a bit tatty and faded now but today I cleaned it up, changed the tyres, fitted a new Magura rear brake line and took it for a spin. It's pretty much as it was when first built, only thing that got changed was a replacement newer XT headset 8 or so years ago, last time it was really used.

Orange Prestige 1991 (I think) 19"
Pace RC35AB forks
Syncros stem
Syncros post
Answer hyperlite bars
Flite titanium saddle
Magura hydrostop brakes (still awesome)
Deore XT thumbshifters
Deore XT front mech
Deore XT rear mech (all 735 era)
Deore LX chainset
Deore DX hubs on good eyeleted but unknown rims (stickers long gone)
Deore XT headset circa mid 90's
