If you want ornaments, stones and photo frames are a lot easier to polish and carry around. :twisted:


But then I would have to join some highfalutin rare stones or photo frames online forum, and if I think this scene has some snobs with their special avatars, i could only imagine what those sites would be like :roll:

:wink:

Well, here is my first stab at BOTM.
Its a 1990 Overburys Pioneer. It was custom built (in a garage in Bristol :lol: ) from Columbus OR and was colour speced by the previous owner.
Its got a mix of Deore LX and DX (plus some XT levers, for the hawk-eyed out there :wink: ).
Its completely stock, right down to its original Farmer Johns Nephews that still have the knoblies on :D
I also have the original quotation correspondance between the previous owner and Overburys, plus the receipt of sale and owners manuals.

It had never been used off-road before I got my mitts on it, but has seen plenty since.

Full spec, and some more pics, here... http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=75562


Anyhow, here are a few pics.....

Ohh, almost forgot the weight. Its about the same as my Clockwork and Jamis....... combined!!

update

incase anyone else believes I missed halaburt's drift, my current avatar is of a photo taken from his page...please, everyone take note, my avatar is a photo taken by and belonging to, halaburt.

I felt I needed to clarify this post, after receiving a pm on it, to which I responded as such:

No, I understood, and thus the wink. I'll replace with a photo of my own Phoenix Ti headtube, as soon as I take one this week.

Nice page, by the way, with good photos and documenting of your phoenix ti. Sorry you're annoyed.


and may I add, I've looked at halaburt's page several times, before and after purchasing my phoenix...it's a great page and an inspiration to me, as it should be to us all. Thank you, halaburt.

:D
