Jonge Trappers cycling shorts, likely made in the 1960s/1970s given the style. An excellent choice for wearing on your vintage bike (or any occasion you fancy of course), and also a responsible alternative to buying brand new cycling kit!
If you're taking part in L'Eroica or a similar vintage event, these are fully compliant - so rest assured, the pre-1987 police won't lock you up for having the wrong shorts!
The shorts have been thoroughly checked over and graded as excellent condition. If there are any issues worth noting we’ll do so in the overview section below, but please take a good look at the photos so you can see the condition yourself before you buy.

**This is just an estimate based on the waist measurement alone so please check the actual measurements before buying, the best way to get the right fit is to compare them with those of a garment that fits well. Please use all the measurements provided as some vintage cycling shorts can have irregular sizing, and we find that some of the orignal size labels can be very different to the actual size.

Full Length (Outside Leg) - measured from the top to the bottom, along the outside of the leg.
Inside Leg - measured from the centre of the crotch to the bottom of the hem, along the inside of the leg.
Across Hem (Relaxed) - taken across the bottom of one hem whilst laid flat, without stretching the elastic. To work out the hem circumference this measurement needs to be doubled.
Across Hem (Full Stretch) - the same as the relaxed hem measurement but with the elastic at full stretch.
