  • got it today... dream condition! merckx corsa, columbus brain

  • ...

  • That's a beauty, Natal. Great build!

    Let me know if you fancy a pair of Merckx Podio pedals for it...I'm near completing my Merckx and definitely have no use for them...maybe have a panto'd stem as well, but looks a touch short going by your current set up.

  • Merckx previous owner? I had a 7-11 corsa extra that I sold a few days ago... Missing it all ready!

  • Am I doing it right? Bought the frame from Dimi.

    I have full Campagnolo Chorus 8 Speed groupset / campagnolo aero ?Chorus? seatpost / Campagnolo Vento Wheels / Selle San Marco Regal Ti.
    Got generic condor bars and ITM, still sourcing some good bars and stem...but at the moment, these will do..
    Going to change the bottle cage soon'ish...

  • I used to own that /\ regret selling it.

  • that chorus is built for 9 speedz as far as I know but I get why you'd want to rock those ventos with the 8-speed cassette, that is one good looking merckx

    hmm, but my shifters only shift 8 times and they;re campag chorus or am i mistaken?

  • I want your bike so much. Repped.

  • they should shift 9 times when unbuilt but might be stopped from shifting the 9th time when built up. i might also be wrong...but i'm hoping i'm not

    only shifts 8 times even when not built up ^_^

  • I can finally post in this thread.
    This is my first finished Merckx project (I have three more): very early Eddy Merckx (1980) with Campagnolo 50th Anniversary

    That is a lovely Merckx!

  • 1980 Eddy Merckx Professional - MAVIC SSC

    I don't think it's 1980, but a couple of years later (1982/83/84). 1980 and 1981 were all about the signature seatstays, and didn't have the Columbus sticker on the frame :-)
    Great bicycle though!

  • and done...

    Yup, my Eddy balk pista is getting this colorscheme.

  • You're gonna tell me about my bike?

    Interesting.

  • Merckx porteur project

  • You're gonna tell me about my bike?

    Interesting.

    Just saying what I'm thinking! But the seatstays with the EM logo kind of give it away. Again, awesome bike though!
