This is one of the earliest MKM adverts I've seen, published in the December 1972 International Sporting Cyclist magazine.

Hi Paul, I've created a flickr pool for MKM, & Kitching bikes.

It'd be great if I could include some of your scans.

No problem Des, I'll PM you with them. I'll also include a shot of my Ultimate and any other ads, photos etc. I have with the relevant bikes on them.

BTW, the bars fitted the stem and now on the bike. Much better :D

Thanks for that.
What bike did you put the bars on?

The Pennine so they're more or less in period. The longer stem is much better for riding comfort and control with the long fork rake.
