a reprint of the original 48-57 manual would be best. also the '57 spare parts book helps too.

i got mine from antique cycle supply.

Last time I checked, Jan Willem Boon does not sell to the USA. Call Lonnie at Antique Cycle, as already suggested.

Johan!
As you live in Sweden, (as I do to), I would really recommend JW Boon!
Fast and cheap shipping, I usually get my order in 3 days.
And it´s nice there´s no extra fees like taxes or told because it´s inside EU.

From what I gather on this forum,
the only bad service manual is "Clymer"'s.

Hehehehe--- I had to laugh at myself! I did not notice that Johan lives in............ Sweden! My mistake.
Still a pity that he doesn't ship to USA, I see a lot of nice repro stuff in the catalog.

I own several manuals including the original 48-57b rigid manual, the '59-65 manual ( also original) AND the Clymer manual.
Till now no problems with the Clymer, best pics, best explanations etc.

Got all of them in PDF digital format, so anyone own another manual in PDF and wants to swop ??
