Can't run away when you wipe out due to fork exploding

Nice looking Merckx!
 
Pretty nice looking EM. Love the paint. But 8 spd... a little high on the dollar amount

That Merckx has a great paint scheme, but in that condition and with that build they'll be lucky to get half of the $1500 asking.

i like the way we got trained on psa's

It is a fine looking bike in the pictures. Very nice paint scheme, but looks like a bit beat up. Components are ok, but definitely need some work. I think close up, more detailed pictures, or better, seeing it personally, would better show issues with maintenance/upkeep.

i would say this cool old lobster still has plenty of fun miles left in it.

could be a great bike for the right person.

Aluminum Dreams ride very nicely, surprisingly similar to Colnago's steel bikes of the same era.

Sure, the Master is more desirable...but...if you want an older Colnago CX bike, you are pretty much limited to aluminum. Colnago never sold steel CX bikes to the public. They did build a few for professional racers.

I have one, a mid '90s Master, and have been able to document maybe a dozen or so steel CX Colnagos made since the '70s (see Wikipedia for details). Roger De Vlaeminck raced one in the '70s. Luca Bramati raced a lugless steel CX in the mid '90s.

They have the shaped tubes, carbon fork and have a pretty forgiving ride for aluminum.

Dream CX mostly (only?) came with a steel unicrown fork. There was a Colnago carbon 1" CX fork offered separately. I found one on ebay and installed it on my Master CX.

I'd love to snag this bike; too bad the owner isn't interested in selling. A little market research goes a long way.

So is this real, fake or out of your realm, and why please? https://www.ebay.com/itm/Rare-Vintag...C/283220124655

Don't know about this one but he normally has quite a few frames and some really nice ones. I've just found his prices too dear to ever buy one.

I agree, I found a few frames over the years that I wanted to buy but found his pricing above what I was willing to pay.
