Hi,
Up for sale is a surplus to requirements 1989 Merckx Corsa Extra frame and forks in team ADR colours. ST=58ctt; TT=56ctc

I love these bikes but I do not need 2 of them when one could be being used and enjoyed.

It's in great condition for it's age - a few nicks and chips here and there as to be expected but the chrome is in great shape (stays and forks). Some paint missing from the bottom bracket as to be expected but nothing serious. Only points worth mentioning being some minor scrapes the previous owner has touched up witha flat white paint rather than pearlescent, and a very small spot of surface rust by one of the bottle bosses but absolutely nothing to worry about. I'd describe it as 8.5/10 for condition so you can ride it and enjpy it without being precious about it.
It has no dents or dings and is just perfect to ride. Comes with a Shimano 600 Ultegra headset.

Pics to come in a few days.

I'm asking £320 posted but open to sensible offers.

Thanks
A

oh dear it is too small for me...
I have a 59cm c-t (57cm c-c) that although on the smaller end of the scale of what i'd ride is a pretty good fit. Little did I realise what an extra cm would make :( I really need a 60cm c-t (58 c-c)

I started piecing it together, but cannot get over the terrible aesthetic of the long seatpin - see pic below. Is anyone who missed out still interested? I'd consider any swap for larger size too.

Cheers guys.
