For Sale Massive retro MTB catalogue/brochure sale: 1989 to 2009!


Dirt Disciple

Hi guys, following on from my huge magazine clear out I now have all my retro MTB brochures and catalogues to pass on.

I’ve been in and out of the trade and off-roading since the late 70’s and all these were picked up by myself new at the time of publication.

I’ve got around 75 or so dating from late 80’s to the 2000’s.

I realise this is the '>1997' section but I will list all here including the later ones to avoid messy cross-posting.

Klein, Kona, Specialized, Orange, Marin, Pace, Yeti, Independent Fabrication, Rocky Mountain, Shimano, etc, etc...

Please remember many of these are over 30 years old and condition ranges from like new to scrappy but I will try and detail each item.

I will try and price them judging by past global sales on eBay etc or just thoughts on rarity/desirability – if they don’t sell, I will certainly reduce them! ;)

All items *include* First Class Recorded post in the UK (which at this time is around £3.50 to £5 cost per item posted).

Happy to combine postage for similar size items.

Many were scanned here originally for members to enjoy: viewtopic.php?f=9&t=2670
But as I am selling them here I think it is only fair to whoever may purchase them and pay out the £'s for the originals that I watermark the images - the buyer can then have the decision. :)

I will gradually add to the topic as I get round to photographing them etc. Please PM with definite ‘I will take X’ etc as to be fair I will deal with PM commitments to buy strictly in order received as I list them.

PLEASE (!) do not PM before I have listed them asking for X, Y or Z etc! It will just get too unwieldy to sort out otherwise and I will not be able to respond to all these requests. :D

Payment is via bank transfer please. Due to PP issues in the past (scamming, fees, the general fact they are a bunch of ******** ******'s) I try and avoid them at all costs but if it really (extremely really!) has to be PP then strictly GIFT/FRIENDS/FAMILY payments please.

Pics of various to come below, I will update ASAP with the actual individual items with pics and prices and details, one per post.
