You have a point there sinnerman,I mean who had heard of an "overburys" before a couple turned up on here
simple answer to that is those who were actually there back in the day..!!!
all i can say is that if this is the case im glad, that they have found there way back to the forefront........i mean come on, custom builders at the begininng of it all, quality quality quality,.................i hadnt realised untill recently they wernt regarded as anything.... less than awesum, i certainly didnt realise they werent well known....!!!!! i know that the bike trade has always been riddled with high quality marketing ads, continually brain washing the masses, even overburys themselves jumped in, when the orange boys got a good footing based in halifax, overburys didnt like that, there next ad was a pioneer, with piles of oranges beneath its feet(SO TO SPEAK) there is a thread with it on here, as of late, it did surprise me when it popped up, i know the firms on its knees now(sadly), but i alway thought overburys were well known to all!!
But as i stated, the frames of legends cant become legenday, untill we ride them, a couple of people pick up a cheap frame 20 years later, say its good, and a following starts up all over again.......
