A few selected scans of some of the goodies that were available at this time.
For the moment Ive just scanned the Carlton bikes. Ill scan a few more pages soon.
Both catalogues are near identicle except for minor changes to colours/specs of the cycles depicted. Both are full colour and A4 landscape format.
Some bits from the 73 catalogue.
Continental/Corsa. This chap looks too smart to be riding a bike, his flares will get caught in the chain. Jesus boots aint too good on a bike either!
A Criterium in mauve. this was the top spec road going bike for the masses then, apart from the Equipe and Kermesse
New decals and colours for this year.
The 531 'Ten' was good value. The all-chrome Cobra was the one I wanted.
Equipe and Kermesse
Criterium from around 74/75. Great looking machine.
(Check out the ludicrous centre parting on the driver bonce!)
A marque which was built at Worksop from 1960. Now sadly a memory like Carlton.
Ill scan and post some more from these catalogues soon - the rest is mainly Raleigh stuff.
