Looking at the pic above, got me thinking, what sort of bike bottle was used by the team back in '89 - they seem to be just plain simple black ones, does anyone know any more details about the 'right' bottle. I did add a cage in 91 which colour matches the original.
I did have one from the team, I was given it by a mechanic at a Milk Race stage finish when I was a kid after asking for some team stickers they where handing out. Will dig though all my old stuff you may be lucky, as I dont remember throwing it out.
Cracking story, and I'll wait patiently! What colour is it/was it?
I've never been given anything that cool, although a mechanic at the Kelloggs in Newcastle around '93 showed me to toe-in my delta's so they didn't squeal as much! I was very grateful!
So far have not been able to find the bidon but will keep looking. It was / is black exactly from the time of your bike, I can remember the make but was not the same as your usual TA or Elite. I may be wrong but seem to remember being able to buy one to go with the replica team bikes as the time
