    Welcome to the forum WDITT.
    Just out of interest, how far back in time are we going?

    If it was the very first cover, I'll bet that the editorial staff have an archive copy.
    If you can't learn to do something well, learn to enjoy doing it poorly.

    I seemed to remember from a previous thread that mbr office is missing a chunk of the early mags, I think they have the first and then a gap to something like issue 17.

    As for a bike that is bright Orange and made by a company in the north, Orange Bikes http://www.orangebikes.co.uk/

    Right back to the early days I think but can't be sure but sure it was before 98.
    I threw all the old mags away when I moved then found retrobike and just wanted to find one ,
    only I could rember what it was called.
