For you non-bicycle types out there, this is Eddy Merckx, the greatest rider in bicycling history. I do not want to argue the point. I am stating a fact. I have a friend who ate a meal with him, but couldn't talk.
"It was like looking into the eyes of God."

From Jack Gabus:
I am looking for a mid 70's Colnago BEATER, and I do mean beat. Because it going to a Merckx Repilcant. I now have the fork and all the other parts. All I need is the frame...Size: seat tube can be 54 CtC or 55 CtC.
One man's beater is another man's Holy Grail, or another man's Great White Whale ... or his Rooster.
