1985 Overbury's Cross Fell or Peak Finder

I'm not 100% sure of the model, I was told its a Pathfinder but i'm sure those were later models and all the features of this point to the '85 catalouge.

This is my 3rd 1980's addition after the '85 DB Axis and the '89 MS Racing. I love the subtle quality features of these early bikes and the slack angles make for an enjoyable relaxing ride

Yes thats the one. The lady said it belonged to her late father who bought it from new. It was pretty grimey, took a bit of cleaning but there is hardly any wear at all.

The bullmoose bars are ITM.

I've added the pedals and saddle as these were the only non-original components but they are period correct.

Hard to think this almost ended up in the skip.

Sweet ride :cool: .
I dont think it is a peakfinder though. I have a ropey one in gunmetal grey with the origional decals and it is a fillet brazed frame.

Thanks.
The specification above that were issued in Nov '84 (so '85 model year) suggest the same frame was used for all three models and the colour could be chosen.

What year is you peakfinder?
