Strange bike to find over here but my mate wheeled this into my garden the other day, it needs fixed up a bit.

He picked it up on a tour in Canada in the mid 80's - he reckons about 86.
Not a high spec bike- low end shimano and chen shin brakes,
but seems to still have original dérailleurs and shifters (Shimano EM? can some one date these?).
I love the old handlebars, relaxed geometry predating hybrids and scarily thin forks for off-roading.

He still uses it for regular 30mile road trips at the weekends.

Not seen one of these before. Very 1986 colour. '87 Hardrock was similar.

Like the stem/bars.

Sick bike brah!

Norco Bush Pilot 1984. I think that was the first year of Norco bikes. I currently ride this bike off road, snow commuter or pub crawler. I converted the 6 speed to a singlespeed, new tires and installed V- brakes with "travel agent" pulleys so I could use the stock 4 finger brake levers. Built it up as a cheap bike that im not afraid to leave outside the bar unlocked, but I fell in love with its bullmoose bars, quirky handling and the rust patina is sweet.
