I seem to recall Preben Eriksen had a nice set of orange leathers... And an even better van :lol:

Didn't Preben Eriksen have "Lose wieght (sic) now, ask me how" written on his backside?

Think Eriksen was sponsored by some energy / health product at that time, he certainly did have a memorable design on his van at that time though.  I recall Hans Nielsen had a set of (none more) black leathers with the Danish flag across the shoulders and back that were stolen and at the practice of one World Champs meet at White City (1980?) he was seen wearing a set borrowed from Bruce Penhall...

I think Dianetics sponsored Wolverhampton too, for a while.

Always loved Erik Gundersen's white, gold and black trim suit and matching bike covers. Always looked so professional and immaculately turned out

John Davis Coastal Windows white and pink leathers was quite catching as well.
