Complete Eddy Merckx road bike for sale, painted in the famous Team Faema scheme. Handmade in Belgium.
We obtained this from the original owner, a dentist who used it exclusively for pro-am racing. No training rides on this thing! It bears a number holder, onto which we’ve installed our own Team Cicli Berlinetta race number. We’ve been holding on to this bike for a long time now, slowly working on the details, same machine used as team Tönissteiner – TW Rock – BASF – 1985 and now its ready to offer up for sale.
Features a full Campagnolo Super Record groupset. Brake levers are Eddy Merckx pantographed Nuovo Record, and have been perfectly cut out and shaped. Super Record chainrings with Eddy panto. Super Record front and rear derailleurs, front with aluminium tuning bolt. Pantographed Cinelli 1R stem and 66-42 Merckx bend bar (naturally).
Wheelset: 32 hole, low flange Campagnolo Record hubset laced to red anodised Ambrosio Montreal tubular rims. Tyres are 25mm Clement Grifo ’61, with some profile. Killer tyres, super comfortable and great for gravel riding. Perfect for the Belgian pavés.
If you would prefer a clincher wheelset, just let us know and we can sort you out with something quality.
Polished Campagnolo Super Record seatpost and brown leather Zeus 2000 saddle.
We’ve set the bike up according to our taste, with a view to preserving the classic look and style. In saying that, if you would like to make some small changes (saddle, bar tape etc), then often this is possible. We have a large inventory of classic components acquired over the last 13 years.
All in all, a top quality, professional grade racing bike with no dents, cracks, rust or
any other problems. This bike meets the entry requirements for any L’Eroica-style event.
Needless to say, no dents.
