Orbit Gold Medal vintage bike

Orbit Gold Medal


This Orbit Gold Medal goes right back to Orbit’s early days in the 1980s when they were handbuilt in Peartree in the West Midlands.

There was a Gold Medal in the Orbit range for many years into the 90s. The early ‘Gold Medals’ had few equals and made a perfect multi purpose tourer.

You can just about make out the decals on down tube stating: “Handbuilt and Brazed in England by Orbit Cycles.”

Crafted from Reynolds 531c lightweight responsive tubing and topped off with a comfortable Brooks leather saddle – you will be sure to enjoy every mile.
