Claud Butlers first mountain bike, The Canyon...
viewtopic.php?f=6&t=404128
Advertised/sold in 1985, this one has a frame production number from November 1984.
Catalogue had it pretty much all SR or SunTour, however this one has been upgraded with full period correct Shimano Deore XT "deerhead" and 600EX....

A good mate of mine had a claud butler back in the day, was a thin tubed frame with lugs around the tube joins, pretty sure it was 501, in blue, was an 'Enduro' and came with full altus groupset when they brought out the 'microdrive' setup on the cranks, had really tiny rings if i remember right.
He went everywhere on that bike, rode pretty well if I remember right.

And another lad I knew had a fat alloy framed one badged as a 'zagato' dark blue with light blue swirls in it, that got stolen so he bought the same model again in ball burnished alloy!
