Help! How much is a used Eddie Merckx worth?(6 posts)

Help! How much is a used Eddie Merckx worth?ronpitt
Apr 1, 2001 6:03 PM
I know nothing about racing bikes, but now I'm looking to purchase a 94' Eddie Merckx 54cm bike with all campy exccessories and it weighs 19lbs. How much would you say this bike is worth. It rides very smoothly and shifts smoothly. I know a picture would help but I don't have one. The seller told me he paid $4000 for it ,but that was 7yrs ago. Please help. thanks- ronpitt

More info....as it depends on the Model and tubeset and what the campy groupset is.Is someone using certified scales to determine that weight?? Is the seller P.T.Barnum??

I don't pretend to be an expert, but I bought a used '98 Merckx ti AX frame with a Serotta F1 carbon fork and Record headset for $750 last year. Components should depreciate faster than frames, so unless either the frame or components are somehow collectibles, I wouldn't think the whole thing should set you back more than $1000-$1200 or so. And that's assuming relatively high-end frame/components. If it's the relatively budget steel model (not the MX - one of the relatively cheap ones) with Campy Mirage or Veloce and it's 7-8 years old and been ridden any amount at all, I'd say it should sell for considerably less than $1000.
