Top scans mr hotfoot!

How many hotfoots do you own?

Do you have a scan of the " high Sierra" mtn bike- mid 80's ? Cheers

Edit.. I thought I saw it in thread then checked back 10 times and it was gone, my computer is playing tricks...

OMFlyingspaghettimonster!
That '85/86 Catalogue is the exact same one I used to drool over as a pre-pubescent 10-11 year old. Shame it doesn't show the Traveller I ended up with for my 12th Birthday in '86

Zeitgeist... flashback... yeegads... my head hurts. No more coffee for me this morning.

thanks guys i think it is worth sharing ..i remember what it was like when i first started there was no info

and in last couple of years the catalogues have surfaced a friend of mine has some that i am missing

and Paul 1965 he has a lot of malvern star info aswell including catalogues

mungo the smoke chrome frames were only advailable in 1986 for the hotfoot and they are very hard to find

Oh my god these catalogues have me drooling for a Hotfoot 24... Stop thinking expensive thoughts!

Incidentally I can't see the "Traveller" range of road bikes in your catalogue... Any idea why?

Here are links to some other catalogues scanned by DavidI from the Repco Appreciation Thread.

86-87: http://s648.photobucket.com/user/DavidI ... t=3&page=1
87-88: http://s648.photobucket.com/user/DavidI ... t=3&page=1
88-89: http://s648.photobucket.com/user/DavidI ... t=3&page=1

Must make sure to grab a copy of the above, personal photobucket pages are notorious for disappearing.

Hotfoot if you could upload that 90-91 catalog that would be so greatly appreciated!

I am restoring my Repco Victory Tri-A (black frame with manly pink cables and typical pink/yellow/green decals :) live on campus at uni and ride this girl most days, never worried that any1 would attempt to steal her as well she has pink cables on her and looks very boring next to the fancy new bikes.

I am trying to find a nice 600 or 105 group set for her and correct matching tyres, previous owner had put on
-shimano 600 rear hub, HB-6208
-Campagnolo xenon front hub
-gipiemme er18 rims (not sure if these are any good)
-michelin dynamic sport front tyre
-schwalbe lugano rear tyre

It has the suntour edge accushift groupset on it, which i think most people here will either 50/50 say keep it or chuck it. But save the whole shimano vs suntour battle for another time :)
