 I am going through over 500 original antique bicycle catalogs and advertising flyers dating from 1870's to 1910's. All are in VERY GOOD to MINT original condition and have been properly stored vertically in plastic sleeves within hard back binders out of the heat and moisture in a smoke free home for decades.
Email me and I can send you a PDF of my inventory of catalogs.
If there is anything you are looking for, and it is not on the PDF I email you, please email me your WANT LIST as I am still finding catalogs that are not listed yet.

Hi Mike,
See my wanted post a few posts down.  I'm looking for a compelling Maryland image of a women riding in costume, ca. 1890's, preferably a medium or large sized advertising flyer, poster, or catalog cover.  The famous red Crawford poster would be ideal, but I'm open to anything with visual impact.  Time is short; the exhibit opens in a month but we haven't filled this need yet.
Thanks, Paul

I have almost everything listed in a PDF format thanks to Richard Delombard so you can email me and I can send you the listings of catalogs for sale.
Again, I still have about 200 more to record and will get to it when I can.
I will also monitor and remove SOLD CATALOGS from this list to keep it up to date.
Thanks for your patience,
Mike Cates

Original 1883 and 1884 COLUMBIA catalogs just added to the FOR SALE inventory catalog listings.

The FIRST EDITION printed in 1956 of the hard bound book RIDING HIGH still in it's original color paper jacket has been added FOR SALE.

An amazing original hard bound book(only one I know of that exists) of original PATENTS FOR VELOCIPEDES 1830-1882 has been added FOR SALE.

Soon I will be compiling a list of original catalogs from independent bicycle parts manufacturing companies that specialized in supplying their parts/products to the major makers of bicycles dealing with: sprockets, bearings, cranks, pedals, pedal rubbers, handlebars, hand grips, frames and frame lugs, saddles, riding shoes, riding apparel, tires(solid and pneumatic), inner tubes, spokes, rims, hubs, wooden wheels, laced metal wheels, tools, chains, etc and cyclometers, lamps and sundries - ALL SPANNING FROM THE HIGH WHEEL ERA INTO THE TOC BICYCLE ERA.
There is a wealth of descriptive knowledge and pictorial information to be learned from all this original documentation to say the least.

Getting out all your requests for catalogs to you and still finding more catalogs, ad's and bicycle component manufacturers to the industry(frames, tires, saddles, wheels, chains, spokes, rims, handlebars, etc).
Keep your requests coming as this is a LOT of historical information that needs to accompany your bicycles or be in your library.
