Just need some black wide bars, a Turbo saddle, find some crank caps, an m730 driveside in 175mm and to fit my M730 pedals.

Some pics in the sun at last!

Thanks both :) it was a fair amount of effort to pull together. Bit of a weird spec but I like it.

Good job pal and nice to see it getting dirty. Hope mine looks as good when it's finished.

Yes its a classic 88-91 handbuilt british bike shape! Exactly what attracted me to it. Orbit are perhaps not quite as desirable as an an Overburys or Orange Formula (don't have the same pedigree I suppose), but its the same classic dropped top tube shape and fillet construction, and very "british" with the use of Reynolds tubing.

Do you know the size of the thread for the barrel adjuster on the rear canti bridge? Mine was running V's and the adjuster is long gone!

Still looking great btw 8)
