    Merckx

    My interest comes from my bike, which I got
    from Eddy Merckx back in the middle 80's. He took my full measurements
    and shipped it to me several months later. I has all Campi-gear, and it
    is still in very good condition. This bike carries the logos of a team
    he supported by the name of Karel Mintjens, a friend of Eddy who has a
    large furniture business in Belgium. I did business with them here in
    the States. I would be interested in knowing if this bike has value.

    Definitely! I'd suggest posting pictures in the Classic and Vintage forum. I'm sure they'd be drooling - I already am! And welcome to the forums too.
    The rider in my avatar is David Etxebarria, not me.

    Welcome! Try the Classic & Vintage forum...
    "Real wars of words are harder to win. They require thought, insight, precision, articulation, knowledge, and experience. They require the humility to admit when you are wrong. They recognize that the dialectic is not about making us look at you, but about us all looking together for the truth."

    Yes, the bike has value. Pictures are needed for an accurate assessment, however.

    Classic & Vintage will be more than happy to take a look for you .

    Welcome to BF!
