Re:

Cor, I'd have to have a look through old pictures as I've forgotten plenty but I must have had at least 40 1989-94 Oranges, 10+ 1989-92 Saracens, 5+ 1990/1 Marins, various mint Diamond Backs, Al Carters, etc as donors.......

Probably only regretted selling my original 89 Clockwork, Vitamin T and the mint first batch Orange C16 in purple. Maybe the 21" yellow/white Clockwork that popped back up on here recently too. I'd have had that back.

Orange P7 1995 silver 19inch sold

Looking at your list & signature I see a sparsity of P7's. Is it too late for your interest or not an Orange you rate?

Being a relative newcomer I've not sold a retro bike yet but will be parting with a frame & fork that's too small. Sticking to 19".

Yes definitely best to stick to a size that fits.. I’ve tried in the past to make it work.. :facepalm:

I paid £15 pounds for the P7 frame and fork. So couldn’t say no at that price. I like them as bikes, but I prefer the earlier oranges, as that’s what I liked as a young teen.

Yes you certainly had some through your doors. Which original 89 clockwork are you referring too? The Vit t you had was lovely. I sold on my yellow/white clockwork, loved it, but it was too small.
Thankfully dipped my toe once outside Orange. for a Marin..

The one am really annoyed selling is the Orange Clockwork 1992, in orange white fade you sold me Ed. The only silver lining is that I sold it to a guy who used to own a bike shop and always wanted one, plus he bought it as a complete bike. Have seen it occasionally..

Don't worry mate, I'll probably end up selling you my other one at some point and that one's even better! :facepalm: :LOL:

The 89 was my original bike from when I was a kid. It stayed in my Mum's garage for years so I decided to sell it in the end, only to regret it so went looking for another and ended up finding Retrobike!

Sold the p7 a couple of years ago. I only have my current bikes on my signature..
:)
I like the P7, I like Vit T’s... but I wouldn’t buy one now because I prefer O’s, clockworks and Prestige’s more. :cool:
But horses for courses, P7 are excellent bikes, and very popular. I never had any intentions of owning one, but got one for £15.. sold on for £35 pound as I decided not to build it. :LOL: still it was bargain for someone!
