Hey guys!

This is my first sale post so please be kind ;)

Complete 14Spd Merckx Corsa Extra 59x58
- Team Telekom colours
- Columbus TSX
- Neat external cable routing(Rear brake)
- Serial number: 9X-4692-C [1990/91?]
- Suntour superbe pro/Shimano 600
The bike is in good nick, everything functions well and rides smoothly.
No dents or dings on the frame. There's some scratched/chipped paintwork but nothing that is major. As it was originally built with suntour parts there's a 'Suntour' sticker on the top tube and LH chainstay. There's also a 'Merckx' and a 'Columbus' sticket on the forks. please check pics.

Components:
-Suntour Superbe pro chainset(172.5mm), R+F mech, HS, BB and DT shifters
-Shimano 600 brake levers and calipers
-San Marco Rolls leather saddle (Good condition)
-'Eddy Merckx' panto'd Cinelli XA stem (130mm)
-Cinelli Campione del mondo Bars (44cm)
-Mavic 501 hubs on Mavic MA2 clincher rims.
-Dura ace aero post

Some of the parts are a little grubby, like the front mech and the chainset but they all function fine.

I'm in Bristol and I'm willing to use a courier to send across the country.

Please feel free to ask me any questions etc.

SOLD FOR £490(INC POSTAGE). Thanks Bikesoup!

dont think you are a mile away with the price
i would be tempted to build it with campag
although the suntour is decent enough kit.
the brakes look a bit out of place hope you dont mind me saying
just my size too!
alas i have too many in stable at moment
:cry:
or would be sorely tempted
:wink:
think it may be late eighties actually but i stand to be corrected.
i have a nice athena groupset that would look good on it !
