Hi,

Bit of a long shot, but has anyone got a copy of the 1987 or 1989 Raleigh MTB Catalogues? I'm specifically after details for my 2 new impulse purchases - a 1989 Raleigh Avanti and a 1987 Raleigh Ozark. I guess these would have been in the "lightweight" Catalogues they used to produce.

Thanks!

1987 catalogue doesn't have the Ozark, only the Maverick Pro, so most likely a 1988 model.

Thanks, everyone - obviously better search skills than I. Now got the Avanti cat page printed off for my collection!

Interesting point about the Ozark - it was listed as a 1987 on eBay when I bought it, and I was convinced it WAS an 1987 model, as I recall seeing this in my LBS window and I'd mapped it back that it was 1987. Oh well, will search some more and email the guy off the CTC forum to see if he can be any help.


I'm just pedantic - I like to have the Catalogue pages for all the bikes in the cave!

OK, some more research....

I'm now convinced that the Ozark I have is the 1987 model. It's the Red and Black model with U-Brake (pics below)

I believe (and I'm sure someone will be along shortly to correct me if I'm wrong :D ) that the '87 Ozark was red/black, the '88 Ozark was red/white and the '89 Ozark was white and purple.

Seems as though there were US/Canadian variants of the Ozark, as I've seen a couple of completely white ones with U-Brake on the Web on the other side of the pond.

The 87 MTBs (red/black Ozark and white/blue Avanti) didn't appear in the catalogue. They were launched too late to appear - I bought my Ozark in August and it was one of the first in the shops.
