But also, i have seen D.O.G.S B.O.L.O.X frames sell for £600, without matching fork and stem. If it was a complete bike in the correct size and condition, I have seen them make £1000 to £1500.
To be fair, i do know of members with them, and changing hands for 4 figures too.
I'm kind of glad to hear that Carl, as I really hate the fact that people get all excited about one frame builder, while ignoring others.
Don't get me wrong, I love a bargain, and I have benefited several times from the lack of interest in British hand made frames, but jumping up and down over a Brodie, when an Overbury's sold for a fraction of the price just seems a little skewed to me.
Each to their own I guess.
I think the only difference is the Quality of the build, the Overburys, Whilst a lovely bike and British and Fillet brazed, is still a lower quality frame, built to a budget far more basic in its tubing and assembly.
This Brodie on the other hand, is at the other end of the scale, and should be compared to the likes of Adrians Orange Formula, and/or an equivalent build using a a similar tubset.
To be fair, even comparing to a Dogs, is a little out really, given time difference in there fabrication. Even just a couple of years difference, the small steps, might as well have been Giant leaps BITD IMHO.
