Ooh here's a juicy one: Colnago track reputedly built for Eddy Merckx

http://ebay.com/<blah>
>From auction description: "Acquired from Cecil Behringer by previous owner. Mr Behringer told him the bike was part of Merckx's hour record attempt, but would say no more" Seller does say it's clearly NOT "the" hour record bike, but may be one of his training bikes for the hour.

Seems to have a road fork (oval blades) but hard to tell from the pictures; might be a track fork drilled for brake. Nice bike even without the Eddy connection (but sure wouldn't be worth the buy-it-now price without said connection)

How many Colnagos have you seen with spade cutouts instead of clubs? Discuss.
