Wspokes has posted pics of his cycling jersey collection, an I'm impressed. Anybody else here collect old jerseys? I see them being sold on e-bay from time to time.

How about sources of reproduction retro jerseys?

The Schwinn jerseys I've seen for sale in the last few years are all modern MTB stuff, often with Toyota and other irrelevant stuff. I'd love to have a Schwinn jersey suitable for roadbiking, something to wear on the cruiser or Paramount, perhaps like the Schwinn 6-day team wore in the 30's.

www.longscycle.com has various woolie jerseys. They are Retro and you can usually get them Embroidered with silk stitching for under $10...or at least I can get them stitched for under $10. Look through their selection. They run about $29-39. Another thing I am thinking about is adding a front pocket onto the existing yellow/red jersey in the pics. and putting a button there. I am sure there has got to be one in the old schwinn like colors. Buy it and send it to me with what you want written on it...

vintagevelos has merino wool. Just like the Classic Rendezvous jersey on my site. They are more $$ but they are very very nice. They run anywhere from $69 and up. Very nice though. Excellent Quality.

Ebay has a bunch of old woolies now and the bids are hovering around $15-25. Watch the sizes though. I have to order XXL at least usually. I am 6' 165-170 pounds. The Quality of the longscycles isn't bad at all. I rather like mine. I have gotten two...they were the only ones in my size!

Swobo made some nice ones if you can find them. Cannondale even made a very nice lightweight merino longsleeve in the late 90s. I use mine for XC skiing all the time. Also, go to google and query on wool bike jerseys and see what you get. There used to be a company in OZ or NZ that made some reasonably priced. Humma hah. If you want to see a sample of the silk printing I can send you a close up of the biker's high jersey.

Someone has been selling La Vie Clare jerseys -- like LeMond and Hinault wore -- on eBay recently. Prices were bid well over $100. Retro Moteni jerseys also seem to go for high prices.

I've seen reproductions of Motorola and 7-11. I wish someone would reproduce La Vie Claire

There is a size small La Vie Claire on ebay currently for a reasonable bid and ending very very soon. if you only want for display...size small will do. if you want to wear, dieting is an option.
