    you done well

    If the frame is in like-new condition as it appears, you done well. You would pay much more for a new custom Corsa. I love the Molteni paint scheme and probably would pick that if ordering one myself. Are you going to keep the 6-speed group on it, or update to something with index shifting?

    Good question, I'm not sure. Rear spacing is 126mm so if I wanted to really modernize the bike, a cold set would be in order. I'm going to keep it the way it is (except I will put on record carbon levers) and see how it shakes out.

    It does need a new headset, and I have a brand new Record headset in my parts bin. I like the Molteni scheme too. I've always wanted a Merckx, so I hope I like the ride as much as you guys do!

    I'll check back with you in 2025 to see how the bike is working out.

    I'll hop in the DeLorean and do that!

    But first I need to go find a thread about that new 10-speed Shimano stuff.

    Wow, talk about resurrecting a thread from the dead! Is it a sad commentary that I'm still around (although don't post a ton)? That Merckx I was going to buy back in '05 never panned out. The seller had the bike in his car for the day and was planning to take it to a bike shop for shipping after work. As you could guess, someone broke into the car and stole the bike. The seller refunded my money and I felt bad that the guy was out a bike, a car window, and some cash.

    Bike thieves, hang em! My Gios was stolen years ago and I still get mad about it.

    Whoever stole it probably had no idea of the true value.
