I had an Orange Clockwork when i was younger, and it was taken from me by some local scum. It was great, with RC30's fitted and by using an Ultegra freehub body, it was 24 speed.

After that, i went through several bikes and then the other week, we found this in a skip at work, a 1992 Orange Prestige in pink and white.

It needs quit a bit of work, a new paint job, and a few new bits but it will make it back from the dead!!

Have a set of Pace RC35's ready for it but my big question is.....do i stick with the pink or go orange and white??

A bike that has had that hard a life, and been tossed in a skip deserves to be re built as originally as possible IMO 8)
