After retiring from competition, 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 designed some of the first frames of the Eddy Merckx line and helped Eddy in the first business years.
Here we present you Eddy Merckx Corsa road bike in the original paintjob of tema Telekom. The frame stems from around 1993 (serial number 5CT9398Z) and is made of light Columbus SL tubing. Along with the traditional details known also from other models it features some rare solutions. The top tube with racing number holder has two brake cable guides brazed on a side.
When it cames to parts, our Merckx has one of the best racing groupsets of the time - Shimano Dura-Ace 7400 series. Sweet little extra are the Swiss Edco Champion hubs, Selle Italia Turbomatic saddle or indeed the beautiful Merckx pantographed 3ttt stem.
Eddy Merckx bike which not just looks like a team bike, but actually rides like one too.
ConditionUsed. The bicycle is in good condition. The frame has no cracks, no dents and is not bent. The paintwork and decals are all original with small scratches and abrasions.

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
