I sold this before posting a proper 'finished spec' list. Call it a moment of madness. :(

Anyway, here's a few (poor) pictures of my Elite before it went to it's new home.

Nice bike!

What's the little badge say on the top tube just before the seat tube?

The finished result certainly did the frame justice.... nice 8)

...so this one and the Vit T are out, the "O" is in..... what's left and what's incoming in your Citrus collection now? :lol:

Cheers,
boy" 8) "boy

Had a high turnover in the last couple of months Ben :oops:

Got my grey Clockwork and 'O' at the moment. I'm restoring a 1989 Tufftrax as well (it's a 'first mtb' thing). On the look out for a Prestige and really want some orange/white fade content again. We'll see. :roll: :lol:

Ever since I joined the forum I've loved all boy"O"boy's Alu Oranges so am pinching inspiration from his Elite build.



:oops: :oops: :oops: - I'm going to blush!! Glad to be of inspiration. Like the 'squeezed' line from minor_LEGEND too!!
The polishing was very labour intensive - although I still wish I'd decided to re - laquer the frame to protect graphics and shine on the end finish... not that I've ridden it much..... it's the "O"s that are taking the riding abuse at the moment.

You'll need -
Seatpost 31.6mm
Front mech 34.9mm top pull
Headset 1 1/4"
Bottom bracket 68 x 118mm
Patience!!!


Watching with interest - boy"O"boy


Genius... that just answered all my questions :)

Where did you get those aluminium elite decals from?

Orange or Gil?

I've just bought an identical frame :)
