    I love to see an early Merckx Pro like that, the basic competition tool in those days AND with a Mavic SSC gruppo...itīs not something you see often today! Congratulations to a great ride.
    The pantographed stem on my Corsa Extra was just something I found years ago by chance and that finally came into use on the right bike. The Corsa Extra rides beautifully btw, itīs not a ligtht weight, but it is such a fantastic responsive ride that you canīt do anything else than just love it. Makes me stay out on the road longer than anticipated, not many bikes that has that quality

    Here's my 2002 Team SC, 58 cm with "Freddy" paint job. This thing won a race once in very Belgian-esque conditions in a god-forsaken corner of Washington State (on different wheels...Zipp 404 tubulars). Now that I'm a dad and working stiff, it gets out for a short ride 1-2 times per week. I also have a ti 2003 Millenium 3 waiting in the wings for this frame to break.

    Just kidding, as it's a classic build encumbered with the grace of new technology.

    What are those caps on the rear brake cable where it enters the frame? did you not just route the housing through directly?

    Wines of WA,
    Love that "freddy" paint. "break" a team SC??? Not from what I hear. In fact I've never been told of or seen a merckx of any model crack/break. (except for a Team Kodak Premium (scandium) that was crunched in a crit crash (Athens, GA crit).

    Well, they are indeed tough. One could sneer and say that scandium is just gimmicky aluminum, but it is far far tougher and rides closer to steel than most aluminum.

    10th Anniversary Wall Art

    Here is my 1990 10th Anniversary Eddy. I bought if off eBay a couple of years ago...it hangs on the wall under my Tommasini Tecno. It has approximately 500 miles on it. I absolutely believe that C-Record was the pinnacle of beauty. Very art deco. If only it had Sherrif Star hubs. Of my steel framed bikes she is not as heavy as my Bottecchia nor is she as light as my Coppi, my Casati, or my Gios all of which have 10 speed Record and Dura Ace drive trains. She is about equal to my Tommasini, which is Record 8 Speed. She is a hoot to ride, but down tube shifters really are old school after living with brifters for so many years. Unfortunately this is one of 21 (yes I am certifiable) bikes so she does not see the road very often, maybe once a year and only on special occasions. I occasionaly think of selling her, but she does look pretty on the wall...

    So many great Eddy's-way to go. I would really go for a 10th Anniversary in a 57cm please.
    Easily one of the nicest bikes I've seen in these parts for a while. Also, do we need to bribe "mrwirey" for additional pics? Cash, CC, lawn mowing......

    I thought I'd get a pic up of my 1991 Eddy Merckx Team Kelme TSX Century. I had a great time collecting the the various components over last winter.

    Another Merckx Centrury TSX Team Kelme....

    I already posted this in the general discussion section but I figured I should make it part of the official gallery as well. Also, thought I would keep the Team Kelme momentum up...any others out there?
    Enjoy,

    Any suggestions on sourcing NOS for the steel Eddy's in Australia?? Some of the classic steel builds in here have me a little weak at the knees!

    We've been and are neglected by the people at Eddy Merckx in Australia. We don't currently have a distributor/agent and Bruno at EM won't deal directly with our shops. There have been two great NOS EM listed through eBay in the last six months, the better of the two, a MXL in Molteni Orange sold for $2025 whilst there is a SLX in Motorola livery that has been listed and relisted for some time. Maybe its a little expensive but it it rare and NOS and there's no huge shipping or duty to be paid. Other than that just keep your eye open for something in the right size and be prepared to have it "freshened up" by a professional frame painter. If you're going to buy from overseas be sure to buy a frame and not a bike as the postage increases significantly.
