Cheers - Your black O was ace!

Think maybe I should be looking for a 21" Alu Orange...

This bike is awesome in the flesh. Well deserved BOTR winner at the Thetford meet.

Beautiful - so glad it's got some TLC and is being ridden rather than sitting in my shed while I take my other bike out instead.

Great work Jonnyboy, was stunned when I saw it in MBR :D

By the way, here's a pic of what it looked like with it's original (AFAIK unchanged - apart from at least one wheel) spec. inc. Pace RC35s, Maguras, Ti bars (still got these if anyone wants to make me an offer) Selle Italia Ti saddle (sadly no longer with us), campag. rear wheel, Suntour cranks, XT thumb shifters and XT mechs (still got these too)

Of course, it's now famous. :D

(And the garden's finished)

OMG they're brothers ... I've never 'ever' seen another goldie

I'm told they only made 50, I've mislaid an official letter from Orange dated 1993 authenticating my frame. Hopefully it'll turn up cause Orange Halifax computer records don't go this far back.
