I present a 'new' tradingcard-album, album-number 29, on www.motorparade.nl: A 200 A HORA (With 200 km a hour). Published in 1975 by Clube do Cromo, it is complete and presenting 175 stickers in 36 pages, made in Lisbon, Portugal. The stickers are divided between racingcars and motorbikes. I only show the pages with the racing bikes and their riders. The stickers are of a typical 70's style, not so best printed but with great photography. View the album here.
