Not-too-common Merckx Grand Prix. This was their 753 frame, made in extremely small batches from '86 until maybe '90. I've seen 2 other identical frames, same color, same year, one with the serial number immediately above mine, and one above that.

Outfitted in mostly period correct Mavic. 631 cranks, 840 rear derailleur, 862 front. I have the appropriate 440 brake set (the Modolo SLK/Equipe2 style) and 821 shifters, but there's no way I'm trading dual pivots and 9 speed index levers for basically inferior technology. Still searching for the 571/HG hubset so I can replace the Ultegra hubs.

That is a very nice bike! I really like the rack as well, where did you get it?

The rack...

It's a Delta Michelangelo. I picked it up a few years ago from Performance. I think its around .
