These are copies of adverts from International Cycle Sport magazine dated January 1974 showing the various bikes branded as 'Eddy Merckx'.

I would expect to discover that they were, in reality, ordinary Falcon models with a different colour paintjob and transfers but, if anyone knows different, let us know.

I've never seen anything other than the cheap bottom-end ones - and not many of them - so I doubt if it was a very profitable enterprise.
