In my quest to build a 13lb road bike something has to go and this is the start. While I love the bike and have always wanted one, it just ends up hanging in the garage. Too nice to have hanging on a hook.

I believe it is either a 1991 or 1992 Eddy Merckx TSX in Motorola colors

51cm as shown here (Head tube is 10cm):

Dura Ace 7410 1” threaded headset. Super smooth.
Cinelli Grammo Ti quill stem, 26.0mm clamp, 120mm length
Ritchey bars
Shimano Dura-Ace 7700 9 speed shifters
Shimano Dura-Ace 7410 Crankset, 170mm length, 38/52 rings. 38 ring is not a dura ace.
Shimano Dura-Ace 7410 Italian Threaded BB. Super smooth.
Shimano Ultegra Chain (almost new)
Shimano Ultegra 6600 Rear Derailleur
Shimano Dura-Ace 7410 front derailleur
Shimano Dura-Ace 7800 brakes
Shimano Dura—Ace 7410 (Easton) 27.2 seatpost with NJS stamp
Flite saddle with Ti rails (Eddy Merckx logo on back)
Velocity rims (28 hole) laced to Shimano Ultegra 6500 hubs (8/9/10 speed). Hubs are smooth and wheels are true.
Shimano Ultegra 9 speed cassette (12-25)
Vittoria Open Corsa Evo SC 700x23 gum wall tires
No pedals

Oh shoots, a 52 would be optimal but could fit this 51 :eek:

That is a good looking machine!

This is the dream bike from my childhood! Just finishing up a 12.5lb dream build, but am now trying to figure out if I have room for both in the garage.

Are you selling the components separately?

What's the toptube horizontal measurement for this frame?

11-27-2014, 05:47 AM
The top tube C-C is 53.3cm.

I would sell the components separately/individually IF someone buys the frame/fork first.

What would the price be for the frame,fork, headset and stem..

Good question. I think the frame and fork are worth ~$650. While it does have some scratches, the chrome is pretty much perfect, it has internal rear brake routing, a flat crown fork and no rust or dents. To me, that is a very nice combination. According to ebay the headset is in the $50-$75 range and the stem is in the $125 range so how about $850 shipped/paypal'd for F/F/stem/headset?

Bump before ebay :-(
