How about a couple of pics of the lugs, fork and "coventry" sticker..... I can't think of another O'Brien apart from Rory O'Brien from Romford....

I wonder if the decals are home made ?

Likely to be a bought in frame and then built / decaled up to be sold as an in-house bike... might be wrong though (usually am) maybe it rings a bell with someone on here :)
