1973 Wheel Goods Corporation "The Handbook of Cycl-ology"

This is pretty cool....a local bicycle advocate friend brought this to me yesterday (she and her husband have been going through and unloading tons of stuff while preparing for a move to Amsterdam later this year), and it's really interesting to look through. I think the thing that surprised me most has to be how much stuff it was possible to get spare parts for....like, there are exploded diagrams of derailleurs, shifters, brakes, and even seatposts, with listed part numbers, so that you could get a replacement for that random small bit of your derailleur!

I took a few pictures to share (apologies if any are rotated 90 from legible - apparently my phone's accelerometer didn't feel like cooperating, and then Photobucket decided to fight me while trying to get them all rotated correctly):

I have been trying to remember the name of that catalog for a loooong time. I used to have a copy (or two). I love the line drawings in lieu of photos. IMO, that is the coolest bike catalog ever.

Daniel Rebour line drawings, no doubt.
