New Cycling April 1965 - Sanko advert (2nd style) scan 1 main image

A great advert. I note:

  • The weird headshots with the big old guy behind and the small young guy in front. Father Dougal would be very confused. Even I can’t imagine what it means.
  • The first appearance of the Sanko PF.
  • The first appearance of a Simplex derailleur in a Sanko advert. Sanko appear to have become the importers of Simplex gears into Japan. Probably a fatal move.
