Good news, thank you. Are you at all interested in Suntour literature? I scanned a small 2 sided piece the other day and put it on flickr.

Here is a link to the images. http://www.flickr.com/photos/30894973@N04/tags/suntour/

It's just a simple setup guide but I thought it was worth 5min of scanning time.

Interesting that the Marathon dropped a pound between 1985 and 1986 (by switching from 502 to 555 tubing).

The Olympian also lost half a pound as well in '86, though it had 555SL the previous year too.

FYI, the old Seattle Raleigh USA offices at 22710 72nd Avenue South are now a printing shop:

Yep - once Raleigh Cycle Company of America got their hands on the Raleigh lineup, the Sport became a Japan/Taiwan frame.

Now if someone would cough up the complete '72 and '71 catalogs, we'd have the entire decade filled.

That's the 1971 lightweight catalog. They did the same in 1970 - it's the standard catalog whittled down to the drop-bar offerings:

Mind if I post that '71 up?
