Hey,

I'm looking for some old-school bar tape. It's for
a 1970's Alan road bike. In order of
preference, I'd like:

1) Yellow Benotto
2) Yellow cloth (if it exists?)
3) Black benotto
4) Black cloth

Cheers for any help or suggestions,

John

Tressostar is readily available in lots of colours as it's still made. Do a search.

Benotto can be often found at jumbles generally for around £2 or so.

I have some of the striped design in red/blue/yellow.

Don't blame me though if you end up paying more!

It's just that I wouldn't pay any more since I know what I've paid in the (not to distant) past :wink:

Good grief, Benotto at £2 a roll?
I found a German site selling it for €15!

Cheers for the pointers.

Selling?

Or just asking.

Quite a lot of difference. I reckon Benotto tape is highly overpriced by some people. I've never paid much more than a couple of quid for a pack at a jumble which is the only place I would buy it for this reason.

The Bike Jumble's a week late this month ( avoids clashing with the Bikefest ).

@Tom91,
any colour of Benotto in particular?
