This bike is is fantastic original condition. It has not been ridden, only displayed.

This bike is most likely Reynolds 753 even though the label says Columbus TSX
Merckx built the bikes like this for Hampsten to be lighter for climbing.

There is also no chrome and flat top fork to save weight.

Your chance to own a piece of cycling history used by a great champion.

  1. I think it’s the real deal but it’s hard to know what tubing it’s made from. Andy said the best frame he ever had was a Merckx 753 frame which he then wrecked in its first race, the Wincanton Classic, in Brighton. (I happened to be there fwiw.) He didn’t say that there were more of the 753 frames than the one he had.

    I had one of his old team bikes for a while, probably from the same year but built for the spring classics. Rode great, weighed a ton.
