1994 Eddy Merckx MX-Leader with custom paintjob.

I found the frame, size 54, NOS, and I built it with a mix of vintage and new periphericals, in order to respect as much as possible the stiffness of this frame : Shamal, Ultra torque, Cinelli Grammo Titanium...
The bike wheighs an exact 9 kilos thanks to some lightweight components (1990 Flite Titanium, Skeleton brakes, Campagnolo Record carbon seatpost,...) even though I really didn't try to look for the lightest build possible.

Dream bike

I need to build a Mercxx. NEED, not WANT.....I NEED to!!
-Burnham-

Need ?

If you really need, there's one for sale in Belgium : http://fr.kapaza.be/anvers/eddy-merckx---mx-leader-in-zeer-goede-staat-72278989.htm

Price is less a bargain than the price I found my frame but it's still a good price for a complete bike (the fork isn't the original MXL though). ;-)

Super Build

This looks fantastic!! Love it

Re: Super Build

Make me an offer : If you give me enough to by the Colnago Master Piu Track of my dreams, I might let this one go.

haha.

:p

Beautiful Build

Man, that's a beautiful build. Looks really dialed in.

Re: Beautiful Build

Thanks for the compliment.

The bike is also a real pleasure to ride ! :)

Pleasure to ride

I bet it is.

Pics??

Is it me or are there no pics?

Re: Pics??

Sorry, I struggled with the size of the photos to upload and their titles.

Issue is solved now. You should be able to see my two-wheeled-friend I'm so proud of.

Hope you enjoy it.
