This is the 36-page (including covers) Souvenir Program for the 1973 USA National Track Championships which were held in Northbrook, IL. The Program was published by the Amateur Bicycle League of America (ABL of A). The front cover is a photo of a road race from the 1972 Nationals; John Howard (on the left) won the sprint and Championship. The dimensions are 8 1/2 x 11 inches. This Program is full of names of riders, ABL of A Officials (many of them ex-racers), pictures of people who are interested in and support and/or race bicycles, adverts from bicycle industry companies, and much more valuable information. My family company, West Coast Cycle advertised two of the bicycle brands that we distributed to Dealers; Nishiki and Azuki (Nishiki was produced by Kawamura and Azuki by Kuwahara & Giant). When time permits I plan to scan some additional pages and mention more of the names of the people involved. There are six additional pages of inserts included in this Program. See the picture gallery.

We listed the three other Distributors who were also distributing Nishiki bicycles in their respective territories; Louisville Cycle & Supply Co, Mc Rae & Connor Co., and Pettee Cycle Supply Co. The tag line KB BICYCLES FROM JAPAN was to signify that these bicycles were produced by Kawamura Cycle Co in Kobe, Japan. KB = Kawamura Built.
