    Motorola TSX Merckx build

    Just got this a month ago. Frame was barely ridden with just a few chips from knocking around someone's garage. Building it up with 7700 DA. Will post more pics later when built--still getting parts together...

    If anyone knows of a 56 or 57 Molteni frame for sale please let me know.

    Nice. Chrome stays and flat crown fork. Great choice on the spec.Mine is 7700 as well. Some say the best looking groupset Shimano ever made

    What year do you think that is from? Feel like I saw that frame under the Moto riders back in the day at the GP Montreal. One year Lance Needlelong was on that livery.

    You're going to like the way that bike rides. I built up a Corsa 01 a few years ago with Campy Athena. It has a wonderful ride.

    Just picked this one up so soon I'll be able to compare Corsa SL to the Century TSX. Been crushed with work and it's been pouring rain but maybe this month!

    7700 is pure class. Love it.
