Something a little different (who me...?? :roll: ) - in the form of an Orbit ATB. Probably a 1989 Dudley-built model with quite strange brazing on some of the joints. Rather avant garde paint job for Britain, pre-Cali invasion, too..

Need to source the appropriate SunTour mechs and make the PACE forks attempt to rebound just a tad, then it's off to Mayhem for an all British Kawasaki squadron of racers... 8)
