Older Serotta Brochure

This is an older Serotta Brochure (not really a catalog) from an unknown date. Maybe some of the more knowledgeable folks might know when this is from.

Thanks for sharing! Have no seen this one before. Actually, I just noticed this is a new part of the forum. Great idea.

Replying to a very old thread I know, and I am certainly "not knowledgeable," but I noticed this text in the brochure:

Quote:
Four years ago Ben Serotta left for England to apprentice as a frame builder...
Would the time of his apprenticeship help nail down the timeframe for the brochure?

Nice catch Skip. We know that he started building under his own name in 1972. Guessing that he was in England in 1971. That would put the catalog around 1975 if he was in England for only one year, or 1974 if he was there for two.
