T-Mar, You should contact Rand (or whoever) and see if they are OK with the website (I did this with Schwinn, talked back and forth for awhile with their lawyers and then they went bankrupt and sold again). At that point I gave up and just published the SLDB site. Now Schwinn is approaching me for permission to link to my site from theirs. I wouldn't worry to much about copyright of old catalogs, etc. This is about the only way for these companies to retrieve their history anyway. Just go for it and about the most they would do is tell you to cease and desist.
