The Eddy Merckx Professional was the top model of the 1980s Eddy Merckx catalogue. After retiring from competitions, the great Champion Eddy Merckx started setting up a bicycle manufacture. Since he wanted to build the best road bikes possible, he engaged simply the best frame builder to help him with designing the frames and teaching other frame builders: Ugo De Rosa.
1980s Eddy Merckx Professionals have appealed to collectors from all around the globe ever since. This one - serial number G6R E 6087 - dates back to 1982 and is in original condition. Cherry on the top the Reynolds 531 tubing, available only on request at the time.
As for the components, this Eddy Merckx Professional is equipped with an original Campagnolo Super Record groupset from 1982 with many pantographed parts.
Simply perfect. Steel frame manufacturing at its finest!
