Sears Roebuck Catalog Spring Summer 1971 Minibikes

Sears “1971 Spring Through Summer” Boston “242A” Edition Catalog

Sears Roebuck and Co. Spring Through Summer Boston “242A” Catalog for 1971. 8” X 11”, 1573 pages. Color and black & white illustrations.

This classic Sears catalog is a BIG collection of tacky polyester fashions, “modern” appliances, electronics and hundreds of decorative and useful items straight from “That 70s Show” that all Baby-Boomers will remember.

There are some great 8-track tape players (car and portable), great Daisy and Crossman BB guns and shotguns and rifles. I especially like the off-road “Trail-Tamer” mini bikes, go-carts and dune buggy parts (including a body that would fit on a VW bug). You can even buy a whole rebuilt VW engine (I think I bought one around this time). You will probably find your own favorites. This is not a Christmas catalog, so there aren’t any toys. But you will find musical instruments such as electric and flat-top guitars, drum sets and amplifiers, a banjo, all sorts of radios and TVs, clocks, watches, bikes (including Spyder bikes), boats, outboard motors and trailers, fishing gear, auto parts, cameras, movie projectors, living room sets, stoves, refrigerators, furry bathroom sets, braided rugs, ride-on lawnmowers, pools, tool sets, sanders, electric ranges, entertainment consoles and swing sets. Men,

This catalog has no missing, ripped or cut pages. Covers and spine show some scuffs and wear but are intact. A great trip down memory lane.

Very Good condition.
