Apart form the decals :? I'm liking this very much. The silver finish shows off just how chunky the seat tube is. That in conjuction with the 1 1/8" headtube and skinny top and down tubes gives this the quintessential late 90's clockwork look. Very cool! 8)

Now just get Gil to make you some proper decals instead of those cheapo ebay jobbies... just look at the size of that '7' on the P7 sticker! :roll:

What happened to the metal headtube badge? I kinda liked that!

That new paint is much improved over the old!

The metal head badge is safe and sound in my spares drawer. I could not decide on it but it is safe! :wink:

I think clockworks look great in silver or grey - it goes with the Orange really neatly!!

I might even go grey with mine if i cant find someone capable of doing an orange/white fade!!!!

I agree. All we need is a colour match for the '92/'93 silver-grey finish. If I can find it my prestige could well end up that colour. 8)

Seriously, get the silver/grey colour match with classic decals. Always my favourite from BITD and very rare. 8)

Another busy day, many cups of tea and for once no skinned knuckles!

Orange Clockwork
F14 Orange Aluminium fork
XT M737 Groupset except for hubs & shifters (which are Deore DX)
Ukai rims
Tioga Psycho II (F) IRC Geo Claw (R)
A to Z Q/R's (coz they work well and are cheap!)
Some green bolts as an 'omage to it's original colour
Control Tech stem
Ringle seat post

I am very pleased, a workmanlike useable bike, just what an Orange should be. :D
