I have just seen this. I'm a Donohue collector and you have a special frame their my friend.

Donohue made plenty of them but they were completely custom and very expensive. They were made out of whatever tubes or even combination of tubes the buyer wanted.

Most importantly it was pretty much the same design as the fabled orange formula (the unicorn) that Donohue built.

I've owned 3 one in 531, one in a mix of Reynolds and finally in Titanium.

My friend still has one in 531 with the original stem and straight forks, still the best xc mtb I've ridden.

Thanks, yes there are a few Donohue made frames about, some sharing the seatpost stamp, like the Formula you mentioned.

Still not sure on the plans for this but am gathering parts for it, slowly :lol:

Its always good to see pics of nice bikes on here so feel free to post some up of yours and your friends bikes :wink:
