Eddy Merckx Professional 50th Anniversary Road Bike 1980s
- Manufacturer: Eddy Merckx
- Size: 52 cm
The Eddy Merckx Professional was the top model of the early Eddy Merckx brand. It was 'the bike that lives up to its name' as the first advertisements of Eddy Merckx stated.
When the unsurpassed Champion Eddy Merckx quit racing he started to set up a bicycle manufacture. Since he wanted to build the best road bikes possible, he managed to engage one of the best frame builders of all time to help him in designing the frames and teaching other frame builders. No one less than the great Ugo de Rosa designed the first frames and helped Eddy in his first years as an entrepreneur.
Eddy Merckx Professionals are still highly valuated pieces of cycling history.
And here it is: A Professional from 1984.
The original paintwork shimmers in its original pearly champagne hue. All the nice original details are there. The pantographs on the then new sloping fork crown, the stem, the seat stay caps.
On the technical side the bike is kept very simple - just the best parts have been good enough. That is an extra fine and highly collectible Campagnolo 50th anniversary groupset (Serial number 1019)!
A well equipped Merckx Professional is always something you would like to rest your eyes upon. And this one is really set up with the finest components you could get. Wether you are a collector or simply a fan of beautiful bikes with a great pedigree - this Eddy Merckx Professional is great choice. »See Details
