In the late 1980s and early 1990s the Eddy Merckx Corsa Extra was one of the best road bike frames and therefore the choice of many professional teams. It dominated the peloton with its extremely well made triangle of light and rigid Columbus SLX or TSX tubes. Being a large frame for heavier riders, our bike was built with Columbus TSX tubing. Those were "superbutted" tubesets from Cyclex steel, designed for professional use and famous for their helical reinforcements on the inside.
This Eddy Merckx Corsa Extra is a bit more special for the reason that it is a limited edition frame, made for the 10th anniversary of Eddy Merckx bicycles. The frame was consequently equipped with Campagnolo's best parts which at the time - the legendary C-Record groupset including the iconic Delta brakes!
The Bike is an exceptionally good original condition and almost 100% original except for the Tufo S33 Pro 24 Tubular tyres.
To provide a point of reference, we included a scan of the original catalog in the photo gallery. You will see that the Bike is just like the one in the catalog - down to the saddle, Stem, and bottle holder.
The bike has been checked in our workshop and is ready to go.
Iconic. Perfect for daily rides, weekend tours and impressing every bike lover around you.
Used. The bike is in very good condition. The frame has no cracks, no dents and is not bent. Paintwork and decals are original. Hardly any scratches or paint chips in the frame, few signs of use on the groupset. All parts have been checked and are working fine.
