I would be grateful of any contributions — sales brochures, magazine ads, magazine articles, pictures, specs, facts, corrections etc. Please scan the material in JPEG format (large enough that all the details are visible) and send them to me. Please tell me the source and the publication date if possible. If you send me pictures of your own bike, please follow these instructions.

There is no printing date specified on brochure but we can tell that this is the first version of the Mame-Tan bike. No disc brake, no flames, no cast alloy wheels.I believe the model was introduced in Japan as 1978 year's model in 1977. - These beautiful scans of the Japanese sales brochure were sent to me by Garry Kemp. Thank you

1979 Mame-Tan 50E brochure from Japan, three pages. Click to enlarge.
I found these scans on a Japanese website. I think there should be a fourth page as well with the specs, but I could find only these three pages. The print month and year usually appears on the last page of the brochure so I can't be absolutely sure that this is from 1979 but the model with the cast wheels came for 1979 so...
