    I wonder if they were an exclusive run or they just wanted to sell the spare team kit ;)

    I liked the matching arm warmers they had at Paris-Roubaix, gotta draw a line with the FKW somewhere though

    Did I mention this was rare? 1 of only 50 made in the universe? This collectors piece will surely continue to rise in value.

    I'll start around the £400 mark but will sell to whoever offers the most. I have it listed on eBay for £350 and elsewhere too.

    It may have cost 89 euros to buy direct, but having missed that once in a lifetime opportunity this could be your last chance to own a piece of history.

    P&P was 10 euros at the time of buying but I skipped this by sending my domestique to collect. I'll obviously mark up the P&P if you want it delivered

    You can collect directly from my Château in Provence or later in the year at my Chalet in Chamonix, my staff will serve you at my door.

    Am I doing this right?

    the frame colours are actually coloured electrical tape, I love the mondrian colours so tried my best to liven it up, the original looked too plain

    https://www.lookcycle.com/fr-en/products­/apparel/jersey/look-1985-jersey

    Label still attached, in plastic bag. It also came with a fancy black envelope which just contained badly photocopied returns instructions (also included in sale)

    Made in Italy by Marcello Bergamo, fits more like an Small, I managed to order Large & Medium and the Large fits me like Rapha PT Medium

    It's quite a thin jersey, the side panels are really see through thin

    Limited run of 50

    I'm located in France but can either ship at your cost, else i'll be in London after xmas / new year time

    I love it, I'm not an expert bike reviewer, but it feels like it pulls away fast (is responsive) and is comfortable on long rides. I find I'm not as confident descending on it but think that maybe due to the wheels, I have a Canyon AL with Ksyrium wheels and I feel way more confident leaning right into corners with it.

    The marmite looks do allow you to lie across the top tube when descending but I don't really feel the need (have the balls) to do this.

    Got the jersey today, is there a level above FKW? Italian fit so large is like medium.

    Really like the shape of the 675, was after a 695/795 but found this at the right price. Wheels, saddle and brakes purchased from here.

    I always hoped it might have been made in France or even Tunisia. I got knocked off last week and stripped it down to inspect for damage and found a Chinese inspection sticker inside the frame.

    Think I grabbed the last one. If it doesn't fit I'll put it on eBay for twice the price and list it on here too but for a bit more again.
