This is an Overbury Pioneer, designed and built in England by Mr Overbury, long before Gary Fisher and his mates thought of riding down steep hills on old clunkers.


LOL.

The frame looks to be in reasonable shape to me to be honest, my worry is the fork. Where you goina get another one from, if they are as bent as they look. the dreaded achilles heel of this model im afraid, i waited for what seems like forever to find a good enough example, and paid well for it.

Given the bike, anywhere under £200 i think its a Bargain.
