I was burglarized on Thurs Sept 15 (Vancouver, BC). The main thing stolen was my Orange 223. At least that was the most important item.

It is custom painted matte black (brand new paint job, as yet unridden), no decals or headtube badge, with a Marzocchi 888RC. Black on Black on Black. Can't miss it as only a few exist in Canada.

Please keep your eyes out! Needless to say, I'll be rewarding anyone who helps me get it back.

As a fellow Orange rider I'll keep my eyes peeled. I'll spread the word as well. That bike will stand out like a sore thumb on any trail.

I seriously hope someone spots it.
I can't imagine losing my rig to some low-life thief.

hmmm. most of that bike looks like mine (sans the bar and pedals). unsure why the whole spec and pics i posted years ago doesn't show up. and looks like sticker and headtube badge got applied (funny, i still have the headtube badge kicking around that i was about to put on the bike)….
