Subject: [CR]CR: Vintage Bicycle Racing Newsletter Backissues Available!

I've had a request for backissues to the defunct newsletter I used to write - the Vintage Racing Bicycle Newsletter. I published this when I owned Bicycle Classics Inc. many years ago. The newsletter was started at the begining of 1994 and ran through 1999. The articles were pretty crude, the graphic quality was terrible, the spelling even worse. But it retrospect the newsletters track the development of our hobby in its early days. There were 17 issues (I think, I only have through 17), each about 10 pages long (including the mailing page).

I'm thinking of reproducing these - some of which will look even worse then they originally did due to second generation reprints.

But - if your not scared away, and you want early articles on things like Masi, Confente, Herse, Austro Daimler, Hetchins, frame construction, Campagnolo stuff, and articles from some of the well known folks who frequent the CR list, please email me.

I think I would reprint the pile, and sell it as a big bound volume (about 190 pages) and charge about $30 or so.

If interested, please email me, so that I can figure if/how many to run.

Also, there were some folks who may not have taken up the offers to redeem unused portions of subscriptions for cash or parts when publication ceased. If you are owed anything from then (5 years ago), let me know and hopefully I can make it up to you with reprints or something else.
