I fell in love with the Overbury's Pioneer 24 years ago when my mate bought a Campag Euclid equipped from Thornhill cycles, he let me have the frame six years ago but secretly regretted letting it go, then this came along and a deal was struck, he walked away with his frame and a box of NOS Euclid parts and I got another Pioneer!
Hurt a bit getting rid of my stash but I made him very happy and i'm stoked with this one!

there are couple of spots of corrosion but that's it, all the bearings run smooth, its got a full deore groupset, Biopace rings and Mavic Oxygen M6 rims, under a very dodgy saddle cover was a pristine white Rolls saddle.

Don't think the Scott AT4 bars really go so i'm going to replace them with a flat bar i'll use a Paul Duo lever for the brakes and a XT2 thumbie for the front, 66 Triumph Daytona is sending me a 7 speed gripshift which i'll flip upside down so I can run it on the left.
Swap the tyres for some splashbacks and it will do for now !

I'm torn between restoring the "clockwork" colour scheme or to replicate the 89 frame and forks but using candy red rather than silver.
