Northampton Invicta Road Club kit

Postby baucutts » 29 Mar 2017, 11:18am

Hi,

I am looking to do L'Eroica and L'Eroica Britannia this year on my grandad's Bob Jackson frame from his youth, fully restored. He used to race for Invicta Road Club of Northampton, and I was wondering if anyone has any kit available or knows where I'd be able to get some, ideally 1950s/60s ish but the club more than the period is more important to me.

Thanks!

Sadly the club has long since gone. I raced against the Invicta in the 1950's and 1960's. The members I used to know are now dead. Contact Northampton CTC who might help or even contact the local paper.

Just found this. I was a member of Invicta RC late 70s early 80s. Club colours were plain red jersey and black shorts then which I believe were also the case in earlier times.

Blast from the past! I rode for the second incarnation of Northampton CC from 77 until the clubs demise in 81 during which period the likes of Ian Cammish were members.

I did ride Eroica a few years back in full NCC strip on my Owen Blower - I even found an OB musette in my kit! :D
Convention? what's that then?
