    Anyone looking for a Merckx frame

    I have no relation with the seller --

    Vintage Eddy Merckx Corsa 01 Road Bike Frame Frameset Dedacciai Zerouno Tubes 57 | eBay

    I have this frame in a 56 cm and it's such a nice riding bike. Deda 01 is a more modern tube set than Columbus SLX. Custom builders still use the stuff. My Merckx bike is similar in weight to my titanium bike. You can get it resprayed for $400 and for $1000 total have a lot nicer than a new steel bike with some panache to boot. I built mine up with silver Campy Athena parts. I get a ton of compliments on it. But the way it rides is the best part.

    The Corsa 01 has a very good reputation. My size, but fortunately for my wallet, I'm not in the market right now. That price is OK, but one might find a little better price with some patience.

    There is another seller on EBay with unpainted frames but no forks.
    It looks like they bought a bunch when the old factory closed and everything got sold off.
    I am tempted, but need a very small frame.

    Interesting. Pretty good deal and the paint is in nice shape. Exact same paint job as my frame had, but the previous owner had it resprayed in a metallic maroon/red with white panels.

    It's a re-spray so not an original Merckx color scheme. The painted to match fork is carbon. Threadless head set. So among Merckx enthusiasts it's a bit of an abomination. Probably why the seller had to post it three different times on ebay before I finally bought it for $700. The frame/fork looked damn near new since he'd just had it painted a few months earlier. For me, it was a steal. I mean steel.
