Eddy Merckx Autographed 7-11 Nov 14, 2009

Emiliano went on the Ride in the Park with Eddy Merckx today and got the cannibal to sign his 7-11. The rain didn’t stop people from heading out and meeting with Eddy. Looks like fun! Bummed I missed out.

If you missed today’s event, tomorrow Eddy will be at Strictly Bicycles from 12:00 – 1:30 signing autographs. Just 5 blocks north of the GW bridge on Hudson Terrace. If you’re heading out to the Hills Hurt race, you’ll be really close-by.

Here’s the side-view. Nice build!

I’ll have to wait till next time. My MXL is still awaiting a new bottom-bracket anyway.

    AHHHHHH, I hate working. I’m missing everything.

    now the question is what to do to protect the autograph. tape? one of those protective films? clear coat? or just ride it? (i’m leaning towards the last option).

    I agree!

    I have a 1986 Corsa Extra that Eddy autographed back in 1996 when he was in Rome, GA at a charity ride preceding the Atlanta Olympics. It was signed using a Sharpie, and the signature is still there but a bit worn. I rode the bike for a few years after that but now it is stored safely inside.
