Being, as I am, originally from Halifax I thought an Orange should be in order!

I placed a wanted ad and the frame below was offered to me, so rude not to I thought! :)

The previous owner (before the chap bought it from) had it painted yellow to match his other bike, so his wife wouldn't know! :lol:

So, the chap I bought it from removed the paint, which is how I have received it....

As you can see; it'll need a bit of work!

Having seen what you acheived with the DBR I'm more than interested in following this one

whats your plans for the frame...repainting or a LOT of elbow grease
