A rare plaid Bike Jockstrap
A plaid Bike? Paul Winston of the legendary Chipp Clothiers of New York, modified this Bike No. 10 by overlaying the pouch with a Scotch plaid. Known for their whimsical linings in otherwise conservative suits, Chipp also offered matching tie and jock strap sets in the early 1960s. Winston would cut and sew them himself while watching football at home, cranking out up to two dozen modified jocks an hour.
 
Modified Bike jockstrap
Modified Bike jockstrap with a chamois pouch. This jock is especially sensual when the pouch is wet.  
 

Below is a collection of cup-style vintage Bike Jockstrap Pictures 

Raunched Bike cup-style supporter. The plastic cup is held into the pouch with two metal snaps at the top.
Bike Banana Cup
The Bike jock brief with cup pocket. Shown here with a Bike banana cup, the jock brief offers the support of a jockstrap with the full seat coverage of underwear.

This is Bike's latest attempt at improving the cup jock, the Bike Pro-Fit adjustable jock. It has an adjustable cup design for customizing fit and placement. Probably the most poorly designed, most uncomfortable jockstrap I've ever worn!

Here's an older Bike No. 55 men's cotton cup supporter unit with the familiar "Bike Wheel" logo and three red tracer lines around a 3" elastic waistband. The snap-open pouch holds a rubber-cushioned, hi-impact plastic cup. The same supporter was sold as the Bike No. 53 without the cup.

This extremely rare Bike No. 58 was probably a hockey player's jockstrap. Note the similarity of the position of the legstraps on this model and the Canadian-made Pender and Protex jocks on the next page.
