Merckx MX Leader frameset/fork/headset in mint to excellent condition for
Eddy Merckx MX Leader 1996
Color: Gun Metal (Dark Grey)
Frame/fork was purchased NOS, shipped from New York to Tokyo -
in Nov 2009, built up and rode for a little less than 1000km in the mountains
here in Central Japan.
Size is 52cm,
with a 53.8cm Toptube (horizontal). 73.7 seat angle.
Comes with MX Leader original fork in matching colors,
Campagnolo Record 1 inch threaded headset, Campagnlo Super Record Italian BB
Note that Campagnolo Cable Stoppers are not
included in the sale..
Reason for selling:
Unfortunately the toptube is a tad too big
for me, I typically ride frameset with a 52.7cm horizontal toptube or smaller.
Rather than leaving it unused, it will be better off with new owner who can
appreciate the legendary Merckx MX
Leader ride quality.
is used but can easily be mistaken as a NOS. I'm an anal when it comes to bike
As perfect and mint
as it can possibly be, there are some notable 'points' that I would like to
highlight to all prospective buyers.
Fork - 100% Perfect
Cable rub - 98% Perfect (almost negligible)
The bottom side of the chainstays were scratched when I first
received the NOS frameset, picture as attached. Prior to building up the
frameset in Nov 2009, I have touched up with proper
filler and waterproof acrylic paint on the spots. Rest assured
the frameset is perfectly fine with no further touch-up/repairs necessary.
The overall chrome on the right
chainstays are in great condition, however the inner part of the chrome
chainstay has some 'very'minor flacking which has since been polished, worth taking note of. Left chainstays has some minor tyre rub due to silly weightweenie skewers used previously. Spot has been properly touched up and protective tape added.
Refer to high resolution picture as attached, pic 10, 11 and 12
Absolutely zero dents. Two to three very
minor touch ups (1mm-2mm in size)..
Some pics of the complete built up. (Note that this sale is only for the Frame/Fork/Headset and not a complete bike!!)
