I didn't realise Orange did this colour scheme as early as 93. Personally I'd say it's a 95.

I think they did start doing the purple/silver(prestige) and green/silver(cloclwork) fades as early as 93. This one seems to have the Prestige superlite decal which would date it around that time. I think CannondaleKing had one that he re-sprayed green?

Nice bike all the same.. :D

The only ones I've seen in that colour scheme were 1993 like the one below. I thought they'd stopped making the Prestige by 1995.

Nice!
One day, when something else has moved on, I reckon there'll be an Orange shaped hole in my collection.

Well you got a bargain I reckon. I almost bought it, even though I really really didn't need it, and I really really didn't have space for it. But it was within walking distance of me and I must admit I almost bought it.

What does it look like now?
