Managed to delete all my retrobike pictures so added a few on page 2
Another part of my five a day arrived today! Thanks to Del for the sale and giving me yet another project to start before I've finished others.
Frame is a lovely 1992 Orange Aluminium Elite (serial number A2040122), 19". Included were the original forks, Alu Stalk, and Hot Rod bars so they are what I'll base this build around.
Ever since I joined the forum I've loved all boy"O"boy's Alu Oranges so am pinching inspiration from his Elite build. Plan is to make a tidy rider for road work, but this is subject to change. Nothing too flash but lots of shiny bare alu with maybe a splash of colour here and there.
Started today by stripping the old lacquer that was looking tired. Harder job then I thought but it should come up well. Think I'm going to need a huge tub of autosol and a lot of elbow grease!
Updates to follow.
