As one Orange project comes to an end another one is about to start.. :)

Not 100% on the build spec yet but planning something rather special.. :)

It is in my favorite colorway, and hopefully will do it justice.. :)

If you've not ridden one of these before Si, prepare to be amased! Great handling bikes.

I hope so fella :) the formula I had BITD was one of the best handling bikes I have ever owned,,, the C16 will be a good comparison too against this clockwork.. :) , looking forward to getting these out on the trail soon.. :)

BTW.. any idea what the paint code is for the orange.. ? as there are a few chips on the frame I would like to touch in.. :)

Sorry Si, ain't got a clue. Might be worth getting hold of one of those RAL colour charts.

Is it a proper retro example, as opposed to one of these later re-releases?

I'm guessing that doesn't need answering, but thought I'd still ask anyway :lol:

Cracking bike BITD, although I always hankered after the Aluminium'O'.
Looking forward to this build, greatly.

Thanks mark,, no worries,, I have a ral chart on the computer,, so have a look at that cheers.. :)

Steve..

Yea its an original clockwork and not a re-issue.. rather nice it is , always loved the original colour.. .. hoping I can do it justice.. :)

Aluminium'O' might be on the list,, but I do prefer steel ,, we'll see.. ;)

Good to see more Orange content Si. You'll notice a lot of difference between the c16 and an early Clockwork (I did) but both are ace in their own way. :wink:
