Unicorn spotted

This is a rare find.

emp $_57

1985 Eddy Merckx Pista, 54cm square. Columbus SLX, chrome chainstays and full chrome fork!

In great condition for a 29 year old bike! I’m the second owner, previous owner stored it in a garage for 20+ years after racing in college, so it does have some paint chips, but no dents or rust. Chrome all looks immaculate, paint still sparkles in the sun!

Suntour Superbe Pro group all original to the bike includes:
Suntouer Supebe Pro alloy pista headset (super rare)
Suntouer Supebe Pro seatpost (not photoed, does have some scratches)
Suntouer Supebe Pro 165mm track crankset and 49t chainring, great condition, no rub!
Suntouer Supebe bottom bracket, super smooth
Suntouer Supebe Pro hubs laced to Araya Aero 4 tubular rims
Suntouer Supebe Pro track pedals with leather straps (not photoed)
Cinelli 67-39 handlebars
Cinelli 2a track stem
White perforate Selle San Marco Rolls saddle
Continental Gatorskin tubulars, 23mm

basically as is from the 80s, nothing has changed except the tires and bar tape.

last photo shows updates to the tires and bar tape (23mm Continental Gatorskin tubulars and white Benotto cellophane bar tape)
