[quote=Thank you, I'm delighted you enjoyed them! Actually, I also marvelled at the 'old brochure' vibe in some of those pics
IMO the orange/white is THE color scheme to have on a classic Clockwork, no question about it. The frame is so immaculate because it has been repainted by Bob Jackson, and that's also why it's so insanely bright! I'd love to have a frame with the original paint job but I doubt it'd look as stunning as mine does now. However, I've become quite fond of these clockworks as of late so I was thinking I'd get a frame in the original orange/white as a backup in case someone decides to nick this beauty.[/quote]
Looks like Bob Jacksons did a top class job. Sweeet!
Yeah, the orange/white is classic and iconic. It's the 'one'. I do quite like the blue/silver as in your photos. The yellow/white is a rarity – interesting to see one's appeared on RB recently. Some of the other colours Orange came up with were a bit hit and miss, imo.
Bitd (92/93), I bought a bare Clockwork frame and F7 nickel forks which were going spare at a local dealers (near Halifax). The frame was without decals and coated in ultra dark green (not quite black) with a fine teal speckle/sparkle in it. A bit of an odd one. Had to refurbish the frame as it was looking in a sorry old state. Had it powder coated in a sparkling green a year or so back, but now I'm wondering whether to redo it in the classic Clockwork scheme. Or an all over zingy orange.
Make sure you hang to your fab classic collection!
