I always wanted a Merckx....High Gear

Some guys at another forum were talking about the new MX Leader that comes in the Molteni colors. It sure is beautiful, but this Merckx is perfect. Wish it was mine. What do you think?

for the lousy fit to the rider. classics from that era need about 3" max of seatpin showing and stem all the way down. I believe that beauty has since been parted out in favor of the true high mark of the era, a pearl white DeRosa. would like to see how that one turned out. where's that batsheet Aussie been anyway?

IMHO, his Merckx was one the best looking builds ever.
Anyone know what year and model it is?High Gear

both have Spirito's original detailed breakdown...if I remember right his topic line was "sweet as a pearl". Still the best bike posted on this forum. Where is Spirito?
