For sale, my Eddy Merckx Corsa extra. About a year ago now, I decided to take up cycling because I was going to move from biathle to triathlon, so I got this bike at a small auction house in Belgium (where I was living) thinking it was just an old road bike, something to get started on. I did a bit of research afterwards and so I am selling it basically because it is under apreciated here, I didn't ever get round to take up cycling, because as a medical student I have enough on my plate with swiming and running, and I could use a bit of extra cash.

Now onto the bike:
From what I have mannaged to research off the internet, it is a 1988/89 corsa extra painted with team Domex/Weinmann colours. It is fitted with all campognolo components I think, derailleurs, brakes, wheels. I suspect probably mostly original parts. It has white 'pro' brand grip (looks quite new) and I have the Italia seat that was on it when I got it, but it was a bit dammaged, so i replaced it with another old seat I had lying around, but I still have the original.
I just measured the frame and here are some rough measurements:
TT: 22 1/2 inches (57 cm)
ST: 23 inches (58.5 cm)
HT: about 7 inches(17/18cm)
SB: about 7 inches(17/18cm)
I tried contacting the eddy merckx factory with the serial, but I didn't get a reply (something that seems like a common complaint I saw from other forum posts). Please post any questions and I will do my best to answer them. Asking £450 but much much room for negotiation
Thanks
Alex

Welcome to the forum Alex, but i'm afraid that as per forum rules you are going to have to set an asking price else you will find this post swiftly locked.

see the rules here: http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=17697

Item No.1 in the list :wink:
