Nice to see this brochure, was there another lotus bikes one. This looks like a "lotus cars" brochure featuring the bike. I am sure there was a lotus bike brochure with some other lotus 110 images in. This was produced by british eagle, the uk distributor at the time. I dont think I have a copy of it myself.

"This looks like a "lotus cars" brochure" -you are probably right I got this in a freebie pack at a Lotus owners club day at Donington Park 1994 ish. I also remember seeing another 110 brochure too.[/quote]

Yes I do recall some of that, I also recall that the original burrows prototype painted blue and black with red wheels was offered as a prize for a competition in the comic. i wonder who has it now?

I like the brochure! Do you have it in higher res?

Tim - sounds like pictures worth posting! Before x-mas? ;)

This is the same model, the Lotus Sport 110 (branded Merckx for GAN), with track dropouts and a special fork. The bike that Boardman broke the hour record with in 1996.
