Thank you for the links! All have been added. I like that the Bianchi catalogs have geometry for their models--not always the case in brochures.

A couple of weeks ago I was at Gazelle, and discovered that they are busy putting their archives online. For everyone to peruse and download at will. Excellent!

They are still working on it, the catalogs are not in a separate category, so you'll have to really search for them, and knowing some Dutch will definitely help. But there is a lot of interesting and cool stuff there, including many originals of the pics used in the catalogs: the Gazelle Archives

A few samples to whet your appetite:

A small assortment, including 1979 Windsor, 1984 SR, and several Suntour component catalogs: https://www.radiolabworks.com/bikes/catalogs Very C&V site format to boot.

Thanks!

Thanks so much for doing this. I havenít found my mystery bike in any of them yet, but I have a long way to go. This is a true treasure trove.

CILO catalog/prospekt 1958 -- Cilo Prospekt 1958 ? Veloklassiker.ch

Would love to find more CILO catalogs from the 50s-60s if anyone has any leads.

Zeus catalogs & Literature

Being a (literally) dyed-in-the-wool fan of Zeus, I have a complete archive of every Zeus catalog (as far as I know), and every article, advertisement, and catalog mention I can find. Something over 500 pages and adding a dozen or so every year.

Problem is, the files are BIG as I scanned them in high quality so they aren't friendly for email. How can I get you a thumb drive of the files?

What size are we talking about, MB-wise? I know most modern email hosts (like Gmail) are generous.

I don't do the "g" word if I have any other choice (same reason as me not riding the "c" word), my ISP limits uploads to 250M. Catalog 102 all by itself is more than that. It's just easier to stick it in an envelope.

Thatís cool, but not likely the first. Hereís a link to an 1893 Columbia bicycles catalog: https://dc.library.northwestern.edu/...b-5a4e31291a57

Thatís in a library collection with a starting date of 1890: https://dc.library.northwestern.edu/...f-78a5839caa89
