Merckx Mondays Jan 18, 2010

I’ve been working on a post for a few weeks and was all ready to publish it when I realized the photos are all sitting on my flash drive back at the office. My backup plan was to have my new frame in a post, but FedEx screwed that up. Sigh. We’ll have to wait until next week for the MAX/MXL post. Until then, enjoy this Eddy Merckx Jersey that Sasha recently purchased.

Bud Light. Seriously? Amazing. Bud Light sponsored races back in the early 90’s and Eddy Merckx sponsored a team. What a find. Now if it were a Budweiser Eddy Merckx jersey, I’d have to “borrow” it from Sasha. Anyway, to satisfy the vintage Eddy Merckx cravings, there’s a Mavic-equipped Professional below.

This Professional was repainted by Colour Tech in the UK with decals from Cyclomondo on eBay.

That Mavic group is in great condition. Really dialed build.

    I like the gruppo better than the jersey or frame. Cool post as always with M.M.

    I’m thinking that’s a 1992 Bud Light jersey from this team. O’Neil’s is apparently still around: Bet someone over there could tell you/sasha more…
