Eddy Merckx MX Leader Jul 12, 2009

Well I sold my Hollands on Saturday and picked up this beautiful Merckx today. It’s a mix-matched Dura Ace group on a MXLeader frame. The wheels are odd, a Vento rear and a low-flange Nr/Sr hub to a tubular rim. Yes, that’s a number hanger too and it has the pro decals on the front of the fork blades. Oh yea and the rider’s name on the nds TT.

I’ve got some adjusting to do to it before I’ll ride it. I need a 100mm stem and would love to get some better wheels. I really need to polish the seat post, swap the saddle and put on my Merckx bar tape too.

thanks to Sasha for the pic!
That’s three Eddy Merckx bikes now. I’ve got a problem…

    No, it’s an ASLKCGER pro team bike. A bank in Belgium. Jurgen de Backer rode it.
