Formula Orange Road Bike

Retro Newbie
The Orange Formula road bike that Steve Wade built for his personal use in approx 89. Columbus Max frame with monostay rear stay and sloping top tube. Other than the wheels and pedals it's all original spec, mainly DA 8sp. Its in need of a little TLC and really needs a respray. I have seen this bike mentioned in other threads but no picture so thought it should be posted.

Stunning. Legendary. One of a kind.
I've only seen the later Dynamo road bikes, thanks for posting this.
A few more photos wouldn't hurt :LOL:
