Thought it about time that I posted some up to date pics of my Overburys (and its in BOTM, so want to show her off
I bought it almost a year ago now, and its had plenty of use since.
When I collected, I couldn't believe the condition of the bike. It had been bought as one of a pair by an elderly Gent who had one for him and one for his wife.
It came with the original sale receipt,manuals for some ofthe Shimano kit plus letter to and from Overburys to custom spec the bike
This one was his wifes (he'd already sold his one a few weeks before or I would have had both
) and had only seen very light use.
I dont think it had covered 50 miles when I get it, and had never been used off road.
