HELLER
Heller had information on two Harley Davidson motorcycles, one called "Classic Rider" and the other called "Road Bike". These two items were pictured as box art renderings on a product flyer and did not provide any further information as to the years, models, model scale size, availability, etc.
 
PROTAR
I was told by a representative from the North American importer of Protar kits that Protar provides catalogs only to distributors of their products and does not make a catalog available to the public. I was in the right place at the right time and managed to procure one of these gems anyway from them. Here's what kits Protar has for 2000 :
