Yer I was lucky to pick it up, plus a few others from an old cycling mate.
At the time i didn't realize Pijnen's name was on it.
I remember the 70's and 80's was a great period for Six Day events. To me, Pijnen was a stand out rider.
He was more than a stand out, many believe he was the best ever - including my uncle who was a 6 dayman himself. We could probably argue the merits of the big 3, Sercu, Clarke and Pijnen - whatever the outcome he was a LEGEND.
I have a friend in France who collects jerseys, he has a fantastic collection ....I actually gave him my Tom Simpson original which my uncle passed on to me ...anyway, if you ever want to sell it, I know a buyer : )
