Mmmm as I expected.. :oops:

There seem to be many many subtle differences to any Overburys Pioneer I have seen from 87 through to 90, which might explain the spec, if the spec is indeed as it was when bought new, which for me is doubtful.

The rear brake loop, the cable placement, the forks, the lack of any rack and mudguard eyes, the seattube join and the allen key seatbolt, all point to it being less like an Overburys, and more a Bromwich or early Orbit perhaps...?

Lee cooper perhaps, built on behalf of...?
