Water bottles in classic 70s plastic style - where to buy?

I am looking for water bottles in the classic 70s plastic style. Is that design still manufactured somewhere?
Or if you know a shop who has got them.

White ones with no external graphics.


NOS REG or Specialites T.A. are also welcome.

I see those in lots of colors at the local thrift stores all the time. Most look unused and feature promotion logos/slogans.

Walmart, Kmart and some hardware stores still carry the thin wire cages and plastic bottles

Ask Tim at vintagelotus.com. He made a run of reproductions that are pretty accurate. He should know where to get blanks.

Thanks everybody!
Sounds like they are easier to find in US, around here they mostly look hyper modern.

I just realized I really like the classic look of REG and TA, so a copy of that style is first priority.

Thanks. They look ok. But why such a big logo?

Tacx still makes them - the problem is, you can only order printed ones from the factory in orders starting at 500 pieces, but perhaps they do plain ones in smaller batches.

I got a nos crescent bottle without a need for it.
It is a good reason to find a crescent pepita 531!

Interesting, would fit my 80s bike better though:

I believe Dale Brown at Cycles de Oro just announced something. You might check there.

I notice there is a Lotus enthusiast website, and they sell "LOTUS" water bottles in an 80s style.

Thanks

I couldn't find the bottles at http://www.cyclesdeoro.com - maybe they have them in their real store.
Some of the Amazon ones looked ok.

I bought a NOS REG bottle, but I could use some simple model as well.

One thing I wonder about new "vintage style" bottles is if they are made with a more modern plastic, for instance, once which is BPA-free.

Regarding finding them on the CdO website, here's the link Dale posted in the CR list: http://www.classicrendezvous.com/CR_water_bottles.htm

I hope Dale doesn't mind...
