As many of you know, the excellent "Retro Raleighs!" webpage ran out of web space for serving up the catalog scans. Webmaster Ray "Don" Chong gave me a CD with pretty much all the Retro Raleighs! catalog scans, and some other stuff too, in Adobe Acrobat (.pdf) format, and I've put them on the web at: http://bulgier.net/pics/bike/Catalogs/Retro-Raleighs/

Listmember Larry Osborn, who supplied many of the catalogs scanned by Ray, persuaded me to change the name on the catalog we had previously called '75 to '76. He has what he thinks is the real '75, as well as a '57 and some other stuff, and hopefully will be able to scan them for us at some point.

If any Raleigh experts out there spot any other errors, let me know and I'll try to correct 'em.

The '69 catalog is at http://bulgier.net/pics/bike/Catalogs/Retro-Raleighs/69-Catalog.pdf

It says the derailleurs were Simplex Prestige.
