think there were only 50 in 95 and 50 in 96 (this one, the D2) michael at orange asked for it back a couple of years ago, said he regretted selling his! apparently this was nicer than the first one.

good luck in finding one :) but i think you may be looking and waiting for a while :(

i'll never sell mine by the way! :D

so, finally had some time to finish the bike (for the moment! :wink: )

quite chuffed with the spec considering it is literally what was in the garage!

all serviceable usable stuff that is simple to work on should the need arise, that was the idea of this one.

surprised how nice it rides though, very smooth, think it was mainly coz we were riding them back in the day with super skinny tyres and this has 2.1's on it

so i'm chuffed as nuts!! :D :D :D
