Vintage Eddy Merckx Corsa 51cm Columbus SL / Campagnolo frame frameset De Rosa
Pre-owned Vintage Eddy Merckx Corsa Columbus SL / Campagnolo frame frameset De Rosa, in original paintwork and chrome….in my view good patina and a rare honest frame (please see pictures) It has a few scratches, and marks (no dints) and the chrome has a few small pits (see pics)
Built in the early 1980’s, with Serial number is # F1R - E7108 early models were built by / under supervision of De Rosa when he was helping to set up the Merckx factory, in which Eddy Merckx often helped build and finish some frames, this can clearly be seen by the way the rear drop outs are brazed with the typical "wedge" style.
This is an original preserved early Eddy Merckx frame, and very collectable.
