I love classic design of all kinds. And bikes are no exception. Sure, I love the sleek lines and modern composition of a new bike. But take a look at the Colnago's below. They are both sexy as hell, but there's no denying that the vintage bike has a certain majestic presence that the modern bike can't touch. Just like the GTO at the traffic signal.
But there was a time when kit was much simpler. I recently found these replica national team jerseys at worldcycling.com. Check them out - rich colors and clean design. I think they are amazing looking.
These jerseys are from a classic age of cycling when Eddy Merckx (Belgium), Sean Kelly (Ireland) and Fausto Coppi (Italy) ruled the road. Not a big European cycling fan? Use Jim Brown, Joe Namath and Wayne Gretzky's early career with Edmonton as time references.
Feeling nostalgic? If so, check out Cycling Art Blog. Richard posts great vintage/classic cycling related photos every day.
