Eddy Merckx Team Motorola bike

Per the seller.

$_57 (8emtmb)

Very nice vintage Eddy Merckx Corsa Extra ( or possibly a Professional ) bicycle.

Rare and unique chance to buy a bike that was ridden by Mexican racer Alvaro Mejia.

This is an original Team Motorola bike (which also hosted Lance Armstrong at the time).

I believe it dates from 1994, though possibly 1995.

When I received the bicycle, the stem was not original but I have replaced it again with a Cinelli XA model, as it would have at the time.

Finished it with a Cinelli cork handlebar tape.

Apart from that this bike is exactly as I received it with the original components, saddle and wheels.

I have not taken it apart, cleaned it or checked it over.

Full Shimano Dura Ace 7400 gruppo, down to the pedals. Cinelli handlebar (tape) and stem and a Selle Italia Turbo saddle.

Rims are Ambrosio.

Specs and measurements:
Top tube: 56 cm – cc
Seat tube: 56 cm – cc / 58 cm – c.top
