I had a pair of those wonderful Gant gloves back in 1981. Got them at International Pro Bike Shop when they were located in Centerville, Ohio. I think it was the only pair they ever had. Top quality leather, beautifully made, lasted a long long time. In fact, they are the gloves I'm wearing in this photo of me on Pic of the Day:

Wish I could still get those gloves... and the Sidi "Super Cycle Titanium" shoes! I also wish that Famcucine jersey still fit, but that's a whole other topic :-)
