This pretty Merckx for sale..a real time-capsule:


55.5 cm c-t seat; 55cm c-c top tube.

Full description at the photo link. E-mail me with any questions.

First $1400 shipped in CONUS takes it. Or make me an offer.

Have a look..I have the feeling this one won't last long.. I just took it out for a few miles this afternoon, and, you know, every Merckx I've ever ridden has this rock-solid road feel, and comfortingly predictable handling. Seemingly a cut above the great herd of fine bikes of the same sort made at that time.

Charles Andrews Los Angeles

"No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main. If a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friend's or of thine own were: any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind, and therefore never send to know for whom the bells tolls; it tolls for thee."

John Donne
Meditation 1624
