    Masi - http://www.masibikes.com/cycles/speciale_fixed.php

    Milwaukee Bicycle company - came in orange:

    KHS did the Flite in orange for a while.

    But as Batson says, you could get a frame powder coated/enamelled pretty cheap and you wouldn't be picking a bike solely on its colour.

    find a frame you love then powder coat it
    most orange frames have a real lax road geometry
    not because they are orange, but its just is that way

    milwaukee (always) and IRO (for now) are the 2 i thought of.
    before posting, a "noob" should always ask themselves "could this have been answered by first visiting Sheldon Brown

    I heard the new IRO Mark V Pro's are going to come in orange. I was going to wait for a local LBS to get them in, but bought a yellow frame instead.

    ORANGE FTW

    That orange had nothing to do with Eddy. It was the color of the teams sponsor, Molteni sausage. The orange "Molteni" painted frames have been made by Colnago, De Rosa, Falcon, Windsor, and probably others.

    You should pair your orange frame with black components and make a sick jack-o-lantern bike.

    i guess it kinda depends on where you go but i don't see it costing more that $150. I've had friends that had their car wheels powdercoated for $100

    i know it has been mentioned already, but if you're really into an orange frame, go for the iro angus, it has reynolds 631 tubing and the geometry of those bikes is nice
