    My New Corsa 01

    I just finished building out that same style frame. From my research, I believe it is from '96 or '97. Here's some photos of the finished bike.

    Here's a picture of my bike with team Stuttgart colors, so I doubt it's that. BTW I do like the colors of that frams

    it appears to have a race number holder so it could be a team bike. Look into these teams

    That Corsa 01 (blue and yellow) is on of the nicest Merckx builds that I have seen. Gorgeous.

    My New Corsa 01

    Thanks.

    I have a very nice era specific Chorus rear derailleur for the bike but could not get it to work with the shifters. I could never get the angle of the derailleur right and it kept putting too much pressure on my shifters. Oh well, the Record derailleur is not what I originally wanted to put on there, but it works great.

    I accidentally just wound up with an MXL in that same finish, and the yellow saddle and tape were my first thought. Glad to see it looks as awesome as it does!

    I'm a ways away from seeing it built up, and days away from seeing the frame to begin with.
