This is sadly not getting used and I need the space so it's got to go.

1989 Eddy Merckx Corsa Extra F&F in Columbus SLX. Chrome forks, dropouts and chainstay. Team Stuttgart colours. Seat tube 58cm c-c or 60c-t, Toptube 57cm c-c, chainstays 40cm
Stronglight A9 headset

Transmission is Sachs New Success (Chainset, F&R mechs were NOS when fitted).
Consists of 8spd Ergos, Chainset, F&R mechs. BB is a Campagnolo square taper 115mm.
Wheels are Campagnolo Athena on Mavic MA40 with a 13-26 8speed Record Cassette. As you can see rims are practically unused. Complete with Veloflex Master 25 tyres.
Pantographed Cinelli Oyster 101 stem with new Nitto noodles bars.
Seatpost is Campag C-Record and saddle is re-issue Selle Italia Turbo '80's.
Pedals are Look PP66 and I have excellent cleats to go with them.
The paintwork on the frame is still in amazing condition and the colours look fantastic.

Looking for £775 ono collected from East Lothian, Scotland. Delivery may be an option at cost. Contact me to discuss.

Thanks guys.

Some bikes look better in photos than in the flesh. I think this one looks even better in person. If I could hang it on the wall just to look at it I would!

Sad to see this up for sale mate.
Needs must I suppose and if it's not getting used then there are other things that investment could be used for.
Still, I know you put a lot into it. This is a very good price and you should move it no problems at this.
Hope all's well down with you and the family, we need to catch up, it's been too long :)

Cheers Jamie. Yeah, it's a shame but I'm exclusively off-road with my cycling these days and this just isn't getting used. Sad 'cos it's the most beautiful bike I've ever owned!
Need to get together for a ride again soon man. Keep looking for opportunities to get up to your neck of the woods. Not been that far north for a while! :cry:
