Default Motor Cycle Advertisements of yester years

Hello Guys,

I am sure many of you would have some of th advertisements of the PAST for Motorcycles and Scooters. It would be good if we can build up a collection of them here.

I start the process with the 1985 advertisement for Rajdoot 350

I was in India last week. Was doing a bit of cleaning in my house. Came across couple of old mags from 1986 vintage, which had RD 350

You would have noticed that the copy in the advert reads "For the few who dare to live their dreams"

I have been living this dream for past 20 years and would like to stay in the dream, when ever I am on the bike. Even though I get to ride many high performance "dreams" these days, in Dubai, I still am in love with my first dream.

Escorts had many versions of this advert with the same visual and different copies. I have one more with a different copy. I would try and send this along as well shortly

This particular advert came in the mag Debonair in the July 1985 issue

I used to have a 4'x 2' Poster of this in my room until I got married and my wife started accusing me of being in more love with the beautiful leg in the picture than my RD (LOL)

Those were the days 23 summers ago!

Hope to see many more from the by gone era here!

Take care Ride & Drive safe

Nice start there Sir,

People like me would have missed out the ads of these legendary bikes.

An amazing ad for an even more amazing bike.(60 % more power than any other 350 cc bike). I am sure its true!!!!
