Another one in Atlanta. Pretty bike.

https://atlanta.craigslist.org/atl/b...940655268.html



Anyone know what the stem is? Could be original or not, I have no idea but I like the look and the front closure looks easy-access, I might like to have one like that.

Odd duck - from a bit of research, they really did bolt several bike-boom-ish components on a 531 frame (and skimped on the braze-ons as well).

Don't know anything about Bridgestones (other than the obvious) I think this is bottom of the line. I could facilitate this coming weekend.

BIG Merckx. Hi-end frames this large are rare. Very rare.


https://boston.craigslist.org/gbs/bi...942094732.html

Eddy Merckx Corsa Custom 71cm for very tall - $1300 (Boston)


This isn't just a custom 80s Eddy Merckx road bike, it might be the biggest one ever built. It has a 71cm seat tube and 65 cm top tube center to center. Racing geometry based on the Corsa Extra, it's SLX tubing with Campy drop outs, Campy headset, bottom bracket and seat post. It runs a Shimano 600 tricolor 7-speed indexed groupo, nitto stem and modolo bars, fizik bar tape and turbo saddle. It has low mileage Mavic open pro rims and Dura Ace front hub and Ultegra rear with 700x23c Continental four season tires (fits at least 28s if installed flat). It climbs, brakes and corners well.

I've owned it almost 15 years and bought it from the original owner here in MA. Date codes and frame details place it as a 1985. It was ordered through International Bicycle in Brighton, MA which was bought by another shop and other records are unavailable.

It shows typical component and frame wear for its age and use but has no mechanical or structural issues. Stem, tape, tubes, cables and housing, hoods, and saddle were recently replaced and headset was serviced.

Original owner was 6'-5". I'm 6'-7" but believe it could fit someone up to 7' with stem and seatpost adjustments. Standover is ~37.5". Forward to all your tall friends!

Pedals shown are not included.

Happy to share more photos and details.

Any boxing or shipping will be at the buyer's expense.

Thanks very much for sharing this find.

Fascinating.

Thinking right near to 1972 for a date.

Regarding size -

thinking it appears smaller than seller's stated size.

wonder if perhaps they might be measuring oddly as bottom-to-top rather than centre-to-top.

might be worth contacting them for a clarification...

64cm Ron Cooper - $300.

It's been mechanically converted to fixed gear, but the seller is including the original Campagnolo components in the sale.

Seems a stupid good deal, though it's been advertised a year prior at the same great price and it seems no one bought it. Baffling.

Buy it before I try and see how long that top tube is. I have lovely bikes already, but dang, a Ron Cooper????
