When it comes to classic cycling, there are a few things which appeal to collectors around the globe as much as the Molteni Team livery does. Its unmistakable orange colours and the countless victories achieved by the great Eddy Merckx between 1971 and 1976 made it simply an icon, a symbol of professional racing.
Fair enough saying that a Molteni bicycle is a must-have for many collectors.
Besides Colnago and De Rosa, early Molteni Team frames bearing the Eddy Merckx logo were manufactured by Kessels, a Belgian manufacturer who also produced Eddy Merckx bicycles until Eddy started to set up his own production.So some of the first bikes which had the honour to bear the Eddy Merckx logo, were the Eddy Merckx Kessels bikes in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Nobody less than the Champion himself rode them.
