Hi, I maybe swimming against the flow here but when I ride my old bikes ( 1930s - 1970 ) it's just shorts and polo's, nothing clever just comfortable. Terry

A few sellers on ebay who sell only retro jerseys and some are mint.

I tend not to buy new modern clothing but old stuff off ebay :wink:

Retrobike kit

I also have vintage clothing (Miyata, Batavus, Dutch national and more), but Retrobike garments is what I wear riding.

Modern shorts, old jerseys; it's not just the look, but the price: £15 vs. £50.

However, I did recently splash-out on a "retro inspired" Molteni jersey from Prendas: the difference in materials is marked!

^^^ This ^^^

I really like bright tops, for both visibility and for fun.

I tend to stay away from 'team' type tops and just go for stuff that looks interesting.

With the elderly and myopic drivers in my part of the world, I need to give myself the best chance of being seen / staying alive.

I don't pay £15, more like £3.99. :wink:

I can frighten children and old ladies with my legs, so they are always well covered with my trusty Ron Hill tracksters, with bib shorts underneath to protect my delicate's.
