In the late 1980s and early 1990s the Eddy Merckx Corsa Extra was one of the best road bike frames and therefore the choice of many professional teams. It dominated the peloton with its extremely well made triangle of light and rigid Columbus SLX or SPX tubes.
Our Corsa Extra stems from approximately year 1990 and it is made of Columbus SLX steel tubes. The SLX was a "superbutted" tubeset from Cyclex steel, designed for professional use famous for its helical reinforcements on the end of the tubes. Our one is slightly special though, since the head tube lugs are chromed, just as the fork and both stays are. It has been refurbished and it received a light blue metallic paintjob.
The equipment is equally fine and you will find nothing less than the beautiful Campagnolo Croce d'Aune groupset with iconic C-Record Delta brakes. It is then completed with Cinelli cockpit, Mavic rims or the Rolls leather saddle.
A truly top class bicycle which is a joy to ride but to look at as well.
