    '85 Merckx Professional (SLX + 50th anniversary campagnolo)

    Hi,

    I'm thinking about selling my old Merckx bike.
    It's a '85 professional slx with 50th anniversary campagnolo parts.
    Unfortunately the campy group is not complete, the pedals, brake levers, front axle are missing. Overall it's in good shape. located in Belgium.

    No, it is not. I wound up buying the frame (I assume from the guy who bought the entire bike from the posting owner) back in July, had it shipped to the US and then sent it on to Alan Wanta in San Diego to be refinished. It's actually a 57.

    If you're interested in a Merckx Corsa or Corsa Extra, I'm reducing the size of my collection and have five for sale, including a 7-11 Corsa in SLX. Some frames, some complete bikes. If interested shoot me an e-mail at rccardrATcoxDOTnet.

    No, sorry. Everything is a 57 except the 7-11 frame- it's a 58. I have a Faema Corsa in SL, two Corsa Extra's in SLX, the 7-11 Corsa in SLX (that's an odd one, most Corsa's were in SL), and a Corsa 01. And the pro/corsa extra, which is now red and chrome.

    We just don’t realize the most significant moments of our lives when they’re happening
    Back then I thought “well there'll be other days”
    I didn’t realize that was the only day

    There's sometimes a buggy.
    How many drivers does a buggy have?
    One.
    So let's just say I'm drivin' this buggy...
    and if you fix your attitude you can ride along with me.

    Sorry, excavations: Under BB cover cable routing - beginning of 1983; Z-series denoting the period from summer 1984 to autumn 1986. Model built from SLX tubes = Pro SLX, then Corsa Extra SLX (Professional = SL/SP or R531)
