Subject: [CR]RE: Campagnolo posters - QR Poster Available NOW!

I did a double take seeing the Campy QR poster on ebay - hey, that was a reprinted poster I had done years ago when I owned Bicycle Classics inc.

Anyway, I don't have framed ones, but I have a few unframed that I can sell. The poster was a blow-up of a page from the Tabbuci Specialties 1938 Catalog. It is the earliest known ad for Campy stuff that I am aware of.

The posters (really a print on heavy paper) have been moved around a bit, so there may be minor imperfections, but anything I send out will be quite nice and what people would consider suitable for framing.

Shipping for as many as you want in a priority box (the roll up nice into a priority box) is $4.05.

The posters themselves I'll sell for $ 9 each.

If interested, email me your name and address and I'll get it(them) out. My address for payment is:

Mike Kone PMB506 1630A 30th Street Boulder, CO 80301

Thanks!

Mike Kone

\r?\n> i think i bought the same poster you, on ebay. iirc, the seller is list

\r?\n> member hugh enox. after the purchase i corresponded with him and found out that

\r?\n> he was involved with the design and/or printing of the original poster back in

\r?\n> the day. his reprint poster is very nice - i believe it was made from the

\r?\n> original plates, so it is identical to the original. the main differences are

\r?\n> the quality of the paper (the original was matte and not as heavy), and the ink

\r?\n> (the original used a lighter blue). in fact, based on the dark blue ink of the

\r?\n> poster being sold by the cinelli twins guy, i'd say that it is one of hugh's

\r?\n> reprints, not an original.

\r?\n>

\r?\n> hopefully hugh can shed some light on this and tell us more about his posters.

\r?\n> and btw, hugh's packing is so good, it is almost worth buying the poster just to

\r?\n> see how he packs it. no kidding (and no kickback either).
