The only catalogue I know is indeed rom the 1950s or 1960s, and it's included in "Lightweight Catalogues ol. III," published by the Veteran-Cycle Club and available from intage Bicycle Press.

Other wise I hope if one of us ends up with it he will share. Not online, but there is a Jack Taylor catalog included in the ightweight Cycle Catalogs Volume III available in the USA from intage Bicycle Press I don't know if it covers the 40's and 50's; perhaps Jan will see his and can tell us. -

I have a small stack of original JT catalogs by the way, the same one they sent out through the 60s and 70s. I also have their price lists from 77 through about 83, and I have original copies of an article called Taylor Made written by Noel Henderson which talks about their bikes and racing history, and also an article called My Visit to Jack Taylor Cycles that they used as an advertising piece, which was made from an article I wrote for the Tandem Club of America back in 1983. $25 for all (incl one price list, you pick) and the proceeds will help defray the cost of bringing Ken Taylor over here in March for the Seattle Bike Expo. At some point I will have to send copies as quantities of some pieces are limited. Mike Thompson who is the biggest Jack Taylor fan in the world is going to bid on that old brochure on ebay and has agreed to scan it and make copies available, so let's let him bid on it and not bid it out of sight please.
