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 frameset stems from approximately the year 1990 and it is made of Columbus SLX steel tubes. The SLX was a "superbutted" tube set from Cyclex steel, designed for professional use and is famous for its helical reinforcements on the end of the tubes. Our one is slightly special though, having chromed seat and chain stay which match perfectly with the fork.
The equipment is equally fine and you will find nothing less than the slick modern Campagnolo Centaur 11-Speed groupset. It is then completed with a Deda cockpit, Campagnolo Calima rims or the Selle Italia Flite saddle.
A truly top-class bicycle which is a joy to ride but to look at as well.
ConditionUsed. The bicycle is in great condition. The frameset has been thoroughly cleaned and serviced. All the parts and components are NEW.

SVB quality and attention to detail is second to none! Fantastic customer service, very accommodating and helpful. An error was made in delivery and the SVB team efficiently sorted the problem the same day. I was gifted the original item and sent a brand new item, dispatched the same day. Lovely products and very helpful staff. 5*GB
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
