The Eddy Merckx Professional was the top model of the early Eddy Merckx brand. It was 'the bike that lives up to its name'.
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 managed to engage one of the best frame builders of all time to help him with designing the frames and teaching other frame builders. And as it happened Ugo de Rosa - The Master set some of the first frames of the Eddy Merckx Professional and helped Eddy in the first business years.
Eddy Merckx Professionals from the 1980s appeal to collectors from all around the globe due to their perfection and their pedigree. This one dates back to 1982 and is still in good condition.
The original paintwork and decals in Team Kelme scheme cover a frame that has been made from Columbus SL tubing. The chromed rear triangle and fork had to be ordered as an extra and make our professional even more special. And also the pantographed parts are all there where they should be on an early Merckx: Chainring, stem and brake levers.
Regarding the technical side, this classic racer is kept very simple. Top class tubing is completed by a Campagnolo Super Record groupset in great condition! Simply the best of everything...
These early Merckx bikes have gotten a bit rarer recently since many are already in the possession of collectors.
Wether you are a vintage bikes enthusiast, an Eddy Merckx fan or simply love stunning bicycles, here is a chance to own a legendary road bike model!
