It's also the rear stays that are different. The riddler almost looks like it has stays made from the original Overburys forks, while these are straight. Be interesting to see what this makes

A very heavy front fork on this, i cant imagine this did the frame any favours.

I had a Carrera Katalyst way back when. I don't think it was £190 when it was brand new was it? :?

It was a complete monster! The only time I managed to get overtake anybody was on a really long downhill where you could take advantage of its mammoth weight!!

Assuming the Carrera didn't have the fillet brazing someone has gone to a lot of work, to then respray in the original Carrera colour scheme and apply Overbury's decals.

Is it possible that Overbury's and Carrera were built in the same factory at this time (bearing in mind this is late nineties and past Overbury's 'best')?

(I know sod all about Overbury's, or Carrera for that matter - am just intrigued by this)
