93 Eddy Merckx Corsa Extra Road Bike, 57.5 Chorus/Record All Original – $1500 (Ellington)
1993 Merckx Corsa Extra in excellent condition. 57.5 cm Columbus SLX frame with internal cable routing. There are some chips in the paint that can be touched up with nail polish. I have chosen to keep the paint original, since in the 10 years I’ve owned it it has lived in my living room and never been ridden in the rain. Paint shines brightly, and so do the components. Everything but the tires, grip tape and pedals are original and period correct.
Has a Campagnolo Chorus group set, which back then was a mix of Chorus and Record components, and Athena brakes. Campagnolo Record Shamal wheels. Cinelli handlebars, stem and tape. San Marco Regale titanium saddle. Speedplay Zero Stainless clipless pedals and cleats. The cleats have less than 20 miles of use and include rubber covers. Also includes MKS platform pedals with Campagnolo straps. Continental Grand Prix 4000 tires in good shape.
This bike rides beautifully, it’s fast, handles well and has a great feel to it. Gear shifts are superb, Record hubs are in awesome shape and spin very smoothly. Tuned up at Pedal Power last summer, rode less than 30 miles since. Looking for cash, no trades. Feel free to email with any questions.
