Sir Hubert Opperman's Jersey Question. Help Needed!

Postby Tour1928 » Thu Apr 18, 2013 4:31 am

I am working on a documentary about the 1928 Tour de France with a focus on Opperman and the Australasian team. Does anyone know what Opperman's jersey looked like when he rode that year? I have tons of photos, but black and white doesn't help me with the colors. If you have a photo or have seen one in the museum, PLEASE let me know.

Thanks a million!
Cheers!

Hi Tour1928,

I can't help with the jersey but Warren Meade rides fantastic retro stories for Ride Cycling review. I think (I'm at work so I can't check) that he may have written a retro review on one of Oppys Malvern Stars so maybe a good place to start. I googled his name and found this - Bicycle Passion, 31 Riverine Road, Bairnsdale, 0412 981 531

Your doco sounds great.

Cheers

Travis

Might also help to consolidate your five threads (requesting effectively the same information) in one place.

Yes, posting the same question in multiple sections is bad etiquette and per email I provided a direct link to the most suited forum section. Hmmm.
