The retrobike archive is now online, click the link above or here
This is a considerable project which Melvin and myself have been working on for the last few weeks/months. To my knowledge it's the single biggest retro resource on the web. The archive already contains hundreds of scans, catalogues, photos and articles, however this is only a starting point. With your help it can be bigger and better. The archive is divided up as follows
Currently contains around one hundred manufacturers. Each manufacturer is subdivided as follows (where material exists - not all manufacturers have all sections)
-Albums (generated on keywordsâ€¦if you add keywords to your photos correctly they'll show up here)
Archive related to individual riders.
This section contains entries for many of the major magazines. Each is subdivided as follows
This section shows all the material from the rest of the archive on a year by year basis.
The archive will initially be open to all - if it proves to be chewing through too much bandwidth I'll restrict it to registered users only.
Be interested to hear people comments. Melvin and I had much discussion on how to split things down - this seems to be the best we could come up with.
Also be interested to hear from people who are able to help out with this ongoing project.
