I have electronic versions of the Aids catalogues for '52-'70, '75-'76 and '81, plus a smattering of pre-war excerpts. I also have spearpoint, Kromo, early Neta, girder and Biba stems (hope to add a late Neta soon) plus Maes, Capo Berta and Touring bars with the fancy ferrules, map of England Ventouxs, a later Touring bend and the Grand Bretagne bars.

I think there are relevant data in the Kitchings catalogues, too, which I can add (if Chuck Schmidt gives his blessings since these are reprints I obtained from him). I'll be happy to post the relevant pages and photos (which will force me to clean up a few bars).

The Aids catalogues aren't long on pictures and some of the descriptions are cryptic at best, but it would be a start. Just let me know.
