The Eddy Merckx Professional was the top model of the early 1980s Eddy Merckx catalogue. After retiring from competitions, the great Champion Eddy Merckx started setting up a bicycle manufacture. Since he wanted to build the best road bikes possible, he engaged simply the best frame builder to help him with designing the frames and teaching other frame builders: Ugo De Rosa.
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. Much rarer than the men's version is the ladies frame, which is a classic anglais construction and which used basically the same materials as the classic diamond shape version. It is also made of Columbus SLX tubes, featuring the inner helical reinforcements.
Our frame - serial number D8360C - dates back to early 90s and is in original condition. As for the components, it is equipped with a full Campagnolo Athena groupset, Mavic clincher rims with fine Veloflex tyres, Turbo saddle in "Lady" version and a Cinelli cockpit.
ConditionUsed. The bicycle is in very good condition. The frame has no cracks, no dents and is not bent. The paintwork and the decals seem to be in original condition. All parts have been checked and are working fine. The bicycle went through a full checkup at Steel Vintage Bikes workshop. The frame was checked for structural integrity and it's safe and sound. The bicycle is ready to be ridden.

Just bought a second vintage classic bike from Steel Vintage. A great bike at an excellent price and they couldn't have been more helpful. Their fantastic service was every bit as good as before.
Placed the on-line order late on Saturday evening and the bike was delivered to me here in the UK the following Thursday morning.GB
Geeky Eroica Cool. I bought the "old-school" Italian made bike shoes. They were delivered in good condition and in a quick timely fashion. They're geeky cool, just like I hoped and they're put together very well (stitched nicely, no glues where it shouldn't be) light and fit properly!US
Steel Vintage Bikes are such an excellent company to deal with. They are passionate about vintage steel bikes. They have in my opinion very fair prices and very obliging to deal with. Packaging is great and no hassle even for delivery way down here in New Zealand.NZ
The overall service provided by Steel Vintage Bikes is always first rate. Delivery and packaging is always timely and well done. I cannot fault Steel Vintage and have been a customer for a number of years.. Plan to get to Berlin hopefully in the near future, stop in for a some Kaffee und Kirchen and a bike geek mooch around the shop.IE
