No cyclist cycles only in a cycling jersey. That would not only be chilly, but also a bit strange. That is why Retro Cycling now also has complete retro cycling outfits - with bib shorts - in its assortment.
But not just any cycling outfits... historical outfits of big cycling teams like Mapei, Peugeot and Molteni are now available. Ride as if you are part of the blue armada or as a real Molteni'er like Merckx.
Our outfits come from the most illustrious teams. The most famous of them all is Molteni. This retro outfit became iconic after the great champion Eddy Merckx joined the team in '71. He and 8 other riders - including Jos Spruyt and Joseph Bruyère - joined the team of the Italian salami manufacturer after the Faema team ceased to exist.
But when you think of one of the most successful teams ever, Peugeot certainly comes to mind. From the beginning of the 20th century until 1986, they achieved success after success. The Peugeot-Shell-Michelin team took over from Peugeot-Esso-Michelin in '82, making it one of Peugeot's last sponsors. In '83, it was the French cyclist Pascal Simon who wore the leader's jersey on behalf of Peugeot.
