La Vie Claire vintage jersey

The La Vie Claire Cycling team was created in 1984 by Bernard Tapie, who directed it until 1989. The team included five-time Tour de France winner Bernard Hinault, and three-time winner, Greg LeMond, as well as Andrew Hampsten and the Canadian Steve Bauer. The La Vie Claire colors (red, yellow, blue and gray) were based on the artwork of Piet Mondrian (Composition II in Red, Blue, and Yellow, 1930), and gave the team a unique appearance in the peloton, during the 80s. (info from Wikipedia...)

I found this wonderful La Vie Claire / Wonder / Radar vintage jersey (1985-86) at "Prendas Ciclismo", (along with the assorted biretta and shocks) and, obviously, I could not resist getting them...
