Didn't know where else to put these pics, hope some of you Overbury's enthusiats enjoy them. I no longer own this bike, custom built for me in 91, stolen in june 92, recovered in september of same year and later sold on. Last known whereabouts is Nailsea, near Bristol. I'd love to know is she's still going!
Built with a Campag mix of Centaur, Olympus and Euclid, just a DX front mech. Nivachrom tubeset, straight blade forks, Impact headset, Tioga MudDawg tyres.

Lovely bike.

I have to ask - had you just fitted a new outer chainring when the picture was taken, or did you just never use it?

Bonjour, one eyed jim. I was going to say the bike was almost new then, but it does look as if i just didn't use the big ring much if at all! Must have been a granny gear wimp back then. :?

That was a stunning bike, I have a lotta love for Overburys bikes, Overburys were made in Bristol which is quite fitting to where it went 8)

Do you happen to recall what size frame it was ??
