. I would hold out much hope though!
Neither would I; I contacted Debbie about my Diabolo and she could tell me almost nothing, other than the year of manufacture.
Don't forget that Dave has moved workshop at least once (possibly more) since these frames were made.
Still, can't hurt to ask, you never know, they may even know where some are.
As for flying under the radar, an Overbury's frame and forks (not an e-stay as far as I know) was bought be a RB member at the Bristol Bike Jumble a couple of months ago for peanuts, so there are rarities to be had.
I am in Conversation with a chap, (mainly me badgering him..
) who tells me he has an Overburys PR 1.
He is hard work, but tells me it was a frame built under the guise of Pioneer but with tweeked geometry, and the " R " denotes this and stood for Race. it is supposedly made from Reynolds 653 tubing, fillet brazed, with very subtle differences to the model i have now, things like seat collar at the front not the back, lower B/B height, and first generation suspension geometry....
Believe me when i say i feel sometimes its like chasing my tail, and banging my head against a brick wall. hes reluctant to sell, but promises pictures.
What sparked my interest was the original paint finish was a Zebra style paint, with matching forks. including suspension.
Well as you can imagine, he has my interest, but as yet i have not been able to find anyone that can enlighten me a little more, other than one person who remembers seeing two riders at the malverns in 91 possible 92, that were riding a black and white zebra print Overburys.
My Quest Continues.
