Eddy Merckx Professional 531 Eroica Bike 1982
- Manufacturer: Eddy Merckx
- Size: 51 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'.
After retiring from competitions, the great Champion Eddy Merckx started setting 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 with designing the frames and teaching other frame builders. And as it happened Ugo de Rosa - The Master set some of the first frames of the Eddy Merckx Professional and helped Eddy in the first business years.
Eddy Merckx Professionals from the 1980s appeal to collectors from all around the globe due to their perfection and their pedigree. This one - serial number GOR E4483 - dates back to 1982 and is still in perfectly rideable condition.
The original paintwork and decals cover a frame that has been made from Reynolds tubing. A combination which was just made to order, as was the chromed fork.
Regarding the technical side, this classic bicycle is kept very simple. The high class tubing is completed by a Campagnolo Record groupset in great condition! Simply the best of everything...
These bikes have gotten a bit rarer recently since many are already in the possession of collectors.
Wether you are a vintage bikes enthusiast, an Eddy Merckx fan or simply love stunning bicycles, here is a chance to a legendary road bike model! »See Details
