Eddy Merckx Professional Classic Road Bike 1983
- Manufacturer: Eddy Merckx
- Size: 59 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 designed 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 riding characteristics and their pedigree.
Regarding the technical side, this classic bicycle is kept very simple. The high class tubing is completed by a top class Campagnolo Super Record groupset with pantographed parts.
The former owner had decided to give the frame a repaint in the famous fuxia pink of the team Lotto Emerxil who rode Merckx frames in the second half of the 1980s.
The fact that this bike comes with 172.5mm cranks, clincher rims and a 28t Regina freewheel, make it most suitable for L'Eroica events!
Whether you are a vintage bikes enthusiast, an Eddy Merckx fan or simply love stunning bicycles, here is a chance to get a legendary road bike model. »See Details
