    Deutsche Telekom livery

    The bikes that I have seen are always predominately black and magenta. Were any team bikes painted with a different color than black, such as purple and magenta? Thanks.

    Good suggestion. Frame is Team Weinmann, not a Telekom as seller described.

    A lot of pro teams rode Merckx bikes in the 80's and 90's. I assume the bike you're looking at is a Corsa? I have a Corsa 01 from 1996. Its a really nice riding bike.

    It is a Corsa Extra...SLX. There are a couple of things in the ad that make me nervous, so I will pass and keep looking. Thanks.

    I bought it, will let you know how it works out. The Weinmann colors really pop in person and this one looks in decent shape. Parts will have to go though...

    Now I just "need" a Kelme...

    Congratulations. I agree about the colors. How did shipping work out? Seller had a price in the listing but indicated in the description $150 for packing plus actual shipping costs. Which groupset are you going to build it with?

    Seller being pretty cool on the shipping. He found a shop to do it for less.

    Looks like the team Weinnman team used Edco components. Might be fun to try to pull that off.

    I also have a nice 10 speed Campy group and a bunch of 8 speed DA stuff. We will see...

    That looks really interesting. I would definitely like to see pictures if you build it with Edco. Congratulations again.

    Those Edco brakes are interesting looking. You can find some parts on ebay. Looks a little spendy though

    btw bike showed up, better than listing suggested, with CK headset and it was 8 speed as I guessed, not 7. Only bummer is the shop that packed it screwed up and it got dinged up on the downtube (not seller's fault). While I work with Bike Flights to get them to cough up some money for damages, I ordered some NOS 8 speed bits to bring it back to period correct/spec. Also some purple bar tape. Will post pics when done.

    Bummer about shipping. Wasn't 8 speed the first groupset for integrated shifter/brake levers?

    Yes, 8-speed was the first group to get STI/Ergo shifting. It also was the point where rear axles went from 126 mm to 130 mm.

    Hopefully the ding in the down tube is under a bottle cage, or underneath. The bike should ride fine, but if it were me, I'd look at that ding every time I rode it. Stuff like that drives me crazy.
