There were some great ads thoughout the late 80s and early 90s, here was one of my favourites, one from 1991, the Saracen ad with the head hunter, the look on the MTBers face is classic...show us your favourites!

do you remember the Muddy Fox tv advert where a bike rode out of the tv and jumped over a bald alien watching it from the sofa? Was only aired about two times and very late at night during Night Network back in about 1988?

...and the Klein ad with the bike on a bike rack on top of a Porsche 911 but upside down and banging on about getting your priorities right.

There was a good one around '93-'94 for (I think) Stiff Cycles. Big picture of John Major with "We don't sell lemons" underneath. Always chuckle when I see that...

Also, anyone remember the macaw ads with the row of girls in bikins? Classic. I'm certain I've seen this discussed somewhere else. :D
