Hello, I am considering selling a few bikes and have this mid-80s Merckx with mostly C record components including Delta brakes. Frame is Columbus SLX. Trying to get an idea on value. Bike is in very good condition.
Thanks in advance!

Beauty! Top notch.
The size will be a bit of a challenge. I'll start the ball rolling by throwing out a SWAG (sophisticated wild ass guess).

Well...maybe. The taller Merckx bikes don't seem to fetch the prices that the 53-57cm sizes bring, even though it's SLX with a nice group and in beautiful shape.

Stop torturing that rear derailleur!
JYB - I had the same thought after I posted the pic. Brutal! Will fix.

WOW if this did not make the cut, I can't imagine what the others are.

Big bikes don't sell very well. I guess you would get around $1000-$1200.

Just send it out here. I'll dispose of it for you. ;-)

For 1000 I probably know someone who would take it.
In my opinion it is worth much more however. The C-Record Group could bring alone 900 dollars in good condtion
Thanks for the responses. I have a Merckx MXL as well, so the red/white one is a bit redundant. Wonderful bike, though. Will try to keep it if I can.

What size is it? sick bike man.

Hi, if it's a 60 c-c, I could be interested. I need to replace my Weigle that was lost to a car crash a couple of weeks ago. Well, maybe not replace, but use until I get to the front of his queue, whenever that might be.
Thanks. I believe it is a 62 with a 58 tt. I will get specific measurements and report back.

My bent Weigle, which I'm looking to get something to use while it's repaired or replaced, is a 59 c-c seat tube, 57 c-c top. If this bike is a similar size, let's talk.
