• I'm getting to that point where i am trying to re live my 80s teenage years, so I need help.
    Also want to dress up like a Gitane rider, I have the bikes but want the gear.

    So a Renault Gitane jersey maybe a large for my lad and xl for me.

    Sidis lace up shoes in 10 or 11 also some Adidas Merckx same size

    Cheers all take care.

  • I have some Sidi velcro flap jobbies that are pure 80s. The flaps are bright pink. How does that grab ya?

  • Have they got slotted cleats? Sound nice

  • I'm not sure but they took look delta cleats ok. Let me dig them out tomorrow

  • Cheers that’s exciting!

  • Here you go Jon. Full album here.


    They're made of very thin leather/material and a previous owner has stored them so they're slightly crumpled but there are no major creases or cracks. I did intend to get some shoe lasts to try and get them back to shape but they feel great on my feet. I'm just a size smaller. £30 posted?

  • So I bought these but still looking for Merckx Adidas, also Vittoria like Roche wore in 87 would be good to have.

  • I've got these Vittoria

  • I've also got a pair of what I think are a late 90's Merckx... not really sure. Ullrich and Zabel both wore them in the 90's so they're probably a bit too modern for your requirements

  • Thanks! Pm sent.

  • Just posted those sidis for you Jon

  • How do you feel about blue shoes? I've got some blue/white/green Adidas Giro Pros in a 11/46? Let me know if you're keen and I can dig them out and send some photos.

  • Please show me the shoes!


  • I’ll DM you now.

  • Are these size 46? Flat sole or shoe plates? Picture of the sole?

  • They're a bit smaller - more like a 44

  • What is the length the heel to the toe of the shoe..inside and out... as perhaps that is a more accurate measurement.

  • So I now have a few pairs of classic shoes.
    I managed to get some new old stock Sidi Cycle Sport. For a price..

    Any more out there?
