Liquigas (Leaky gas) - right across the bib's derriere.
Of current teams, I dig the retro bike/kit that Lotto was sporting at the TdF:
The man who dies with the most toys…is dead. - Rootboy
While DeRosa didn't sponsor Banesto, it's a known fact that many riders rode their favorite frame in the team colors of the sponsor's bikes.
Heck - at least it's colorful, tho' perhaps a lame attempt.
'81 Austro Daimler Olympian, '86 Eddy Merckx Corsa Extra, '87 DeRosa Professional, '99 Calfee TetraPro, '03(?) Macalu Cirrus, '04 Tallerico, '97 Co-Motion Tandem
^I like those Team BIC jerseys a lot, but I also like the later Team Skill-BIC, too--a nice, easily identifiable kit, though it's hard to make out Kelly's bike in this shot:
Hard not to mention Merckx in Molteni orange, but that was before my time.
For me, honorable mentions go to Raleigh/Panasonic kit, especially on Phil Anderson:
But my vote (surprise, surprise) goes to La Vie Claire, but I'm biased:

early 80's Peugeot, during the Phil Anderson years with pearl white and black and white checker graphics. and the Shell sponsored black and white/checkered Peugeot team Jerseys.....
Gitane's blue bikes with the "bubble" font simple graphics combined with the Renault/Gitane yellow and black kit is a very close second to me. I guess If I owned Gitanes instead of Peugeots, It will be #1 .
The red white and green early 7-Eleven Descent jerseys (Pre-Hoonved) was my all time favorite. I still treasure the non-flocked version sold by Descent, I bought back in the 80's to this day.... It just looked so much better than most other pro team jerseys back then. I really sucked when jerseys went all "batik" with looney designs (even paisleys!...yecch!) in the 90's. It was so bad that i could not even get myself to buy any Jerseys then as those were the only ones in the LBS's.
Your signature contains too many lines and must be shortened. You may only have up to 2 line(s). Long text may have been implicitly wrapped, causing it to be

team_7_11_650x498.jpg7-11 always struck me as cool...but mostly because it was current when I started riding and I have a tough time letting go of the past.
