I got a new Motorola jersey this year. I still have my old one and a Z jersey and a few others. I'd like a 7-11, an Ariostea, maybe a Castorama (have to have the shorts for that one too). What vintage jersey would you like to have?
The real prize would be an old, wool jersey that I wore touring for many years. It was light blue with navy or black bands at the neck and cuffs. I think the brand was Oliver Ditson, but it was long ago.
Sean Kelly team Skill, 7-11, Moltini, and, Gan.
I can't believe that someone hasn't re-issued Lemond era jerseys. I don't need wool. The graphics and link to the history of great cycling is what I'm after. Like throwback jerseys from NFL, MLB, etc...
I was going to buy a Molteni, however I didn't feel quite right about having the world champ stripes on it. I know it shouldn't matter (and i've said as much), however here in rural Ohio where I ride, those stripes would be mistaken by something else and i'd end up getting run over or beat up. Not worth it.
Other than that, I don't know. Maybe a Mapei jersey from a few years ago.
It was a wool Swedish national champions jersey. Vintage Velos had them a few years ago, but I did not have the money for one then. One came up on ebay last year, and my dear wife bought it for me as a graduation present.
Unfortunately this winter some damn little bugs got into it and chewed a small hole in it, now I keep it in a plastic bag.
Vermarc is making some cool new versions of full jerseys. Salvarani is one of them though you may already know that since you have a pic of the new version. Some really cool jerseys in the collection. They are full zip and nice fabric but cost is about $100...
