There was this handlebar tape once, it was some sort of plastic fabric, a tiny bit more padded or thicker and wider than a Benotto, that had this "mother of pearl" effect. I remember it came in several colors, light blue, light red, of course white /see below), and it was popular among pros (see below) .. any ideas asbout make and type? I'd love very much to find a set to complete a build..

I thought it was Benotto. Could have been Bike Ribbon.

I agree: Benotto. Bike Ribbon was available in lots of different colors and patterns but I don't remember the "pearlescent" ones. Those years were fuzzy, though.
