Interesting concept but considering bikes have been around longer than cars and have had at least as many manufacturers and models, a truly comprehensive catalog would look like the New York phone directory, assuming anyone could even find the information.
Your best bet is to look for a specific manufacturer's web site, forum or book. As well biked pointed out, Schwwinn, Trek and Raleigh have been documented in some detail and there are probably others.
