Thanks for puttting those catalogs online. Interesting that the top road model is given as the Severn Valley, which was my perception. However, Peter Brown stated that the Tour of Britain model was the pinnacle of the range in response to one of my earlier posts, which would seem to indicate that it was either not a catalog model or that it was only produced in specific years and that the top model was otherwise the Severn Valley. Does anyone have any further information?

Michael Butler and Alan Weeks have recently kindly provided me scans of the 1948, 1950, and 1958 Viking Cycles catalogues, which I've put up online. Hope everyone enjoys, interesting stuff.

As a side note, if anyone else has catalogues they'd care to share the scans of (or if they have catalogues they'd be willing to loan out for scans) I'd be more than happy to scan/host them. I know Marc Bulgier has done everyone a great service by hosting so many catalogues, and I'd love to help out.
