Lester and Steve, founders of Orange mountain bikes, made a statement dacades ago......(quote)...."the CLOCKWORK has gone on to achieve LEGENDARY status", this was said and sent to print shortly after the clockwork orange debued at the british championships in 1989, taking first place..!

When these two guys, first took there preproduction sample to national race events to gauge rider responses on there new venture, i wonder if they realised, that two decades later, they would not only have a legend but a cult following too...........?

After racing kona for so long, and often being pipped at the post by Orange rider/racers, at last i have the chance to see how this cult model rides..........!

With so many Orange fans here, i hope my long awaited build has done justice to such a milestone legendary bike...!

BUILD SPEC AS FOLLOWS:-

19" Orange Clockwork.......Tange infinity tubeset, Custom Painted, (colour code matched, paintwork, in neon orange/white fade--TEAM COLOURS.)
Extra detailed attention to fade depths into frame, measured as per original paint work, Exact reproduction custom decals, sizes,colours, placement, etc)

Forks......Syncros Powerlite, totally stripped, cro-mo legs treated, and refinshed in factory black, crown polished, replacement decals applied.

Wheels....managed to source, some original complete wheels, as supplied original fit, on this model year clockwork, sadly a very sad state when they arrived, hubs, oxidized very badly, rims streaked and faded, both wheels stripped, inc hubs, new bearings, highly polished, rims stripped, and re-finished in original black, replacement double butted spokes, handbuilt to include radial style front wheel.

Drivetrain....A mix of period shimano Deore and Deore XT, Rapid fire xt shifters this time, XT bottom bracket,
Brakes....Deore, XT.
Tyres, Panaracer Timbuk II"s, (my rubber of choice)thanks to jeff@ffb
Q/Rs.....Odyssey, black and silver, complete set.
Grips......Odi attack (black)
Saddle....Turbo (white)
Cables.....Shimano (white)
Stem.....Syncros
Handlebars.....Orange Hot Rods
Seatpost.........Orange (labeled)

and to finish the package i added a BREEZE + ANGELL HiteRite...!!!!!!!!

cheers for that....the fork choice was simple for me, for two reasons, love the stuff, and as a young lad, i got beat twice racing two years on the trot by the same guy (orange rider), using his upgraded clockwork, he rode with syncros forks, my kona had tempermental track twos......!!!!!! i built this how i remembered it.
