This rare and original Castelli wool pink leaders jersey is signed by the winner of 1981 Giro D'Italia Giovanni Battaglin!
Associated Bike Brand: Pinarello
Races: Giro D'Italia
During my time collecting this online selection of old team jerseys, I have at many times thought surely nobody else will have one of these!
So imagine my surprise when I saw Rouleur Magazine offering a jersey very similar to this one on Twitter as a prize for their readers entering a competition for their podcast!
Nevermind, I'm sure the competition winner will enjoy it as much as I do, although I really must get it framed properly and hung up on the wall at some point.
Talking of Rouleur, I see they also featured this beautiful, very special frameset to celebrate the 65th birthday of Vuelta and Giro double winner Giovanni Battaglin - certainly one for retro steel enthusiasts out their to employ the n+1 equation!
Also available online is the Vuelta a Espana 1981 Yellow Leaders Jersey (once again with Inoxpran/Pentole Posate logos) also signed by Battaglin!
