Containing a selection of classic lightweight catalogues of good quality.  They will be produced to fit a normal screen width but clicking on the image may produce a larger version if necessary. This larger version may be constrained to your screen size and thus appear no different.  A further click on this image should result in a larger clearer image but of course it will be larger than your screen so you will have to scroll from side to site or up and down to see all of the page but it will be more legible.  If you have a wide screen you may only need to scroll up and down.

More catalogues are available on the combined National Cycle Museum/Veteran-Cycle Club Library site at
http://www.cyclemuseum.org.uk/library/

Friends of the Museum and Members of the Veteran-Cycle Club have free access after registration for the site.  Membership forms are available for download.  The alternative Day visitors link provides a listing of all the available items from which a selection can be added to a shopping cart and downloaded following payment at the rate of £3.50 per 15Mb.  The advantage of joining up as a Friend or Member is that there is no limit what you can download for free and you will get a regular newsletter by email that sets out the new additions.

As of March 2010 this is a new section so will take a while to build up.  We shall only upload good quality images, not copies of copies of copies, etc. However many brochures  from the fifties and sixties would not show the one feature most are looking for, the lugs.  This is due to the printing methods used then, often half-tone blocks.  The only brochures showing lug profiles clearly are the ones using larger line illustrations or detail shots of the lugs.
