Brooklyn is a former cycling team of Italian origin. The name and shirt seem American, but it is actually an Italian chewing gum made in Milan.
The team was founded in 1970 under the name Dreher but changed it in 1973 to Brooklyn. This cycling team was active in the period from 1970 to 1977.
Roger De Vlaeminck, four-time winner of Paris-Roubaix, is the best-known rider for this storied team. De Vlaeminck rode for Brooklyn for five historic seasons.
As usual with true vintage clothing, there are a few small flaws. A small spot has a bit of stitching undone and there is a small stain pictured.
