Who built Eddy's bikes is a can of worms. According to one list obtained by a highly reputable collector directly from Eddy, he rode:
1970 - Giuseppe Pela
1971 - Colnago and Kessels
1972 - Colnago and Kessels
1974 - De Rosa and Kessels
However, I've also read that in years in which more than one builder made Eddy's race bikes, one would likely have made the bikes for single-day races, while the other woul have built the bikes for stage races, which certainly sounds plausible.
1973 - Ocana rode both Motobecane Team Champion models, and famously a titanium-framed bike made by Speedwell Gear Casing.
1975 and 1977 - Thevenet rode fairly stock Peugeots.
1980 - Zoetemelk rode Raleigh Team models built with Reynolds 753.
Hinault rode Gitanes in his first two victories (I believe), though I can't say for sure who made them.
Keep in mind that it was very common for top riders to have their bikes custom made and then painted and decaled in accordance with the team's sponsor. Freddy Maertens' Flandria's, for example, were built by De Rosa, and Jacques Boyer's Lejeunes (at least some of them) by Mario Confente. Lots of lesser known Italian builders (i.e. Marnati) built bikes for pros as well.
