Eddy Merckx ‘Faema’ Road Bicycle 61cm c-c


In stock


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, and now it’s 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 pav├ęs.

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.

Needless to say, no dents or cracks.
