    Corsa Extra frame question

    Hi guys,

    I just bought this Merckx frame, without knowing much about it...

    Can anyone here tell me which year/type it is? I could'nt find much info regarding the code on the bottombracket...

    Also, where can I find the decals for this particular model if I wanted to restore the paint?

    Any help/information is greatly appreciated!

    Thanks in advance!

    -Roland

    Those decals are the ones with the gold edges. I thought they were pretty hard to find? I have never been able to. Nice bike BTW.

    I would not repaint that - Clean it up - touch it up, and ride it like you stole it.

    I agree. I might be inclined to touch it up. I have had good success with mixing enamel paints (from a hobby shop) to match colors

    Got another one much better condition IMO

    Couldn't find info on a Corsa Extra with Reynolds tubing though... I though only the Grand Prix's are build with Reynolds?













    Sorry for cellphone pics, and dust According to the owner the bike's been sitting in his garage for the last 15 years!

    Cheers
