Well, i have had a good look around, and now im stumped...!!!

and i am unsure how to proceed with the build... :oops:

Paint it? Dont paint it?

Drop bars? Straight bars?

Original colours? Not original colours?


Overburys..., A quality Boutique GREAT BRITISH frame builder, "AN UNDERDOG" in many ways......, with a quite deservedly classic cult following... 8)

Fellas, i hope you dont mind, me posting pics of the bikes, the best has been done, and i have serious decisions to make on the best foot forward, and seeing them together could help.

HELP.

Duke no that really doesnt help........lmao..

The black Max, in the first pic......wow, i have only ever seen one, it was back in the day, and it really was something else.

It was in Bristol too, and was their secret weapon in the "Battle of Britain" ....., the frame wars as we called it.

Imho it was Overburys answer to what Roberts had going on, it will haunt me it was that good... 8)

But please take away that rainbow to the right its insulting my eyes.... :lol: ..lol
