Not really a catalogue but I've just spent an hour or so routing out a lot of my old photos, scanning and uploading them and thought they might be of interest...

Pics taken at the Bike show in Olympia 1992

Alpinestars FS frameset

Image

Alpinestars EOS

Image

Burrows designed persuit bike (the bike the Lotus persuit bike was based upon)

Image

Image

Mike Burrows himself

Image

Lotus Bike

Image

Burrows designed Windcheetah (I owned one of these a little while later)

Image

Jo Burt signing my poster tube (which I still have!)

Image

Mr Sauce himself

Image

Huge Mint Sauce poster

Image

Editor of MBUK at the time (John Stevenson?)

Image

Klein Adroit (absolute work of art)

Image

Klein Attitude (I think the frame has survived the test of time better than the ex. Saw her recently on facebook - oh dear!)

Image

Kona Hei Hei

Image

Merlin full suspension (no links on the rear, just the natural flex of titanium baby!)

Image

Sir Clive Sinclair promoting his Zike - had the most amazing conversation with him about the C5 and about its marketing. Absolutely top bloke

Image

The Zike

Image

Trimble

Image

And last a Smokestone

Hope that'll do you for now...

Brilliant stuff, thanks for sharing - used to love those 90's shows.

Like the bit about the ex too - she looked nice then though... :)

cracking photos. What is the linkage fork on the front of the Merlin - got any info on that? Was it an in-house thing? What shock did it use (can't quite see)?

I believe the fork on the front of the Merlin is based on the Vector fork used by Proflex only this one was made out of titanium of course.
