This is why I love the internet: If you are looking to find out a bit more info and specs on a Shimano BMX part you have or want to buy, here are pictures of the 1984 Shimano BMX Racing Components Catalogue.
The catalogue includes pictures of all Shimano BMX components available in 1984 including the Shimano DX range of Pedals PD-MX10 and PD-MX15, Single Freewheel SF-MX10, seat post SP-MX20. Page 6 includes photos of 3 types of Shimano Hubs: Shimano DX Large Flange Hub HB-MN72, Large Flange Hub HB-MX25 and Small Flange Hub HB-MX25.Two styles of Shimano Tourney Sidepull Caliper Brakes BR-MX10 and BR-MX20 are listed along with Shimano DX Brake Lever BL-MX20 and Shimano BMX Lever BL-MX10. The full range of 1984 Takagi Cranks and bottom brackets are also detailed with colours and specifications. Takagi TO MX-SPA Three Piece Cranks, Takagi TO AD-MX Three Piece Cranks, Takagi MX-SPF Sprocket, Takagi Grande Cr-Mo One Piece Crank, Takagi MX Cr-Mo One Piece Crank, Takagi One Piece Crank MPH.
The quality of the images aren’t great or particularly high resolution, but you can read the specifications of each component pretty well.
If you have an old BMX or bike catalogue you’d like to share with the world, send us a few pictures and we’ll post it here.
