I'm posting some Univega catalog scans

As a big fan of Univegas I've always been so sad not to be able to find many catalog scans. I recently bought a couple catalogs and have started some scans. I still have a number to do, but I think they're going to have to wait until summer. But for now, for your pleasure...

Any chance you have 1985?

Actually, yes, I believe I do!

I just checked. I have three from 1985 that span the entire breadth of their line-up.

I searched for it for a while back but had no luck. I'd love to take a look when/if you scan and post it.

Awesome! I'm looking forward to that (and any others that you post)!

The actually scanning will take some time, but waterprinting it is a huge hassle, so I probably won't get to it until summer. I'll definitely post again when I've scanned them though! I don't see a lot of these earlier pre-1980 models, but I know that 1980-1985 was pretty popular, so I'll definitely get them up when I can!

Perhaps a silly question but why the water printing? They're not your pictures and as far as I can tell you have no official connection with Univega.

Well, to be honest, I forked out some cash for the pictures, and while I'm happy to share them, I'd at least like to get a little credit for having put the cash out there (and maybe get some people to check out my blog). A bit selfish I admit, but I don't feel completely awful about it.
