After retiring from competitions, the Belgian Champion Eddy Merckx set up his own bicycle manufacture. And since he wanted to build the finest road bikes possible, he engaged simply one of the best frame builders of all time to help him design the frames and teach other frame builders: Mr. Ugo De Rosa.
This particular Eddy Merckx Corsa dates back to the 1980s and is made of light and sturdy Columbus SL tubes. The paintwork is in original condition and illustrates a very typical paint scheme of the professional bicycles of the Weinmann Team.
Completely checked in our workshop, the bike is fully fitted with a Campagnolo Chorus groupset, CInelli stem and bars, and Ambrosio rims.
A distinctive 90s racing machine.
