Having owned a Motorola Corsa Extra in the 90s and using it for road racing and timetrialling, I subsequently sold it when I moved abroad in 2001.
Upon returning to the UK in 2003, I moved on to various plastic bikes, but often dreamed of once again getting another Merckx.
This one came up on Ebay in 2010, and I just had to have it.
The groupset is all Dura Ace except the no-name seatpin and the Stronglight Delta headset.
Rims are Mach2 CD2 tubular.
The bars are 3ttt prima 1999s on a panto'd record stem. Tubing is New SLX.
Although this rides very nicely, the headtube is quite short for a 61cm frame, and the position is not quite right somehow. My other Merckx is not in quite the same condition, and although the seat tube is the same length, the head tube is longer and it rides a hell of a lot better. Probably because its Motorola c0loured....
I will detail that one in another thread.
