Hi

I'm a newbie so please be gentle!

I have rediscovered an Orange P7 in my garage which I've had from new, but neglected for many years in favour of such base objects as a Specialized Stumpjumper and more recently a Lapierre Zesty.

My kids are really taken with this piece of dusty, rust spotted ephemera and have been asking how old it is and were there dinosaurs in those days. I honestly can't remember how long I've had it and was told that there are experts in these forums who are quite good at carbon dating, so I thought I'd give it a twirl.

The frame number is A950300471 and most of it is original, apart from some X-lite QR skewers and seat post clamp in purple. It's got Mint Sauce stickers - a portrait of Summer and Love, Dirt, Dreams and Devotion, which is still a mantra of mine. it's a big part of my MTB history, which stretches back to 1989 with a Raleigh Lizard ATB, so any pointers would be useful.

Thanks
