I was visiting an Italian bike fair in Padua this year when I came across a stall by Bici D'Epoca which had a lot of gear for sale plus some great exhibits including Coppi's 1954 World Championship Bianchi.

I haven't found any links to them from English language sites so I thought I would put something on my blog as part of a general post about the subject of retro bikes

Also has a link to the excellent retro bike cafe in Vienna.

Nice blog. The Eroica is definately on my bucket list (probably in 2014 if everything goes to plan).

I have zoomed in on the signature on the jersey and it would be very hard to make it say Tafi, looks like a B on the surname

My guess is that the Italian Champions jersey originates from 2000 when Michele Bartoli rode for Mapei and won the Italian road race championship. Colnago sponsored Mapei teams from1995 through 2002.

The rainbow jersey must be Giuseppe Saronni's from 1982 when Colnago started their sponsorship of Del Tongo.

Here is a closer view of the jerseys.

That's what I like about this forum - where else would this be of interest!

To the best of my limited knowledge - but with help from Wiki - Bettini rode for Mapei from '99 to '02 and he won his first Italian championship in '03

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Italian_Na ... mpionships

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paolo_Bettini

but I'll grant you Wiki can be very misleading, so I'll not be staking the bank on it.
