We never got Orion's  over here in the states.

I'd love to find one someday.

Thanks man!

Yeah, it's a trusty little beast.

Alls I know about the Orion is it came out in 86-88, they were either fluro pink to black or green to black.

Maybe check it out with 'wraith81'. His Orion broke the ground here and got Orion up on the site. Niiiiice.

Cheers SKat wink

Re: 1987 Orion

Gday,

Frame was painted by the guy I bought it from.

I know that the professionals are pretty way out, like Camden or somewhere round abouts.

Hope that helps.

Re: 1987 Orion

I've never seen one of these.  Sorry you had to sell it.  Very similar to a Torker or Haro Master, very nice.

Re: 1987 Orion

Thanks man. A pure case of 'I wish I kept it' here.

Had to free up some fast funds for the 82 Expert Racer build (should be up here soon).

Now that's nearly up and running I am craving an 85 Master.

LIVE THE DREAM I say... coolcoolcool
