Frame number DC 16956
It is currently orange and silver which seems to be a funny colour. Would like to know if it is something special before I strip and repaint it.

There are no letters after the frame No you give so all painted parts would be green ( Arden Green) exception being the wheel hubs.brakeplates which would be silver

Grren and white bikes had a W after the frame No
Black/whitw bikes had a BW after the frame |No

If there were no letters after the frame No it would have been green

Thanks. Thought it was an odd colour for francis barnett. There is green paint under the orange but silver part has no green paint underneath.
