Eddy Merckx early colors

1980: Marc IWC v.r.d. - Mr Van Impe in the centre of a relaxed bunch of cyclists (Col du Galibier - TdF 1980). The blue frame of a company that has already existed for 3 months.

1981: IWC Imex - Patrick Sercu, the best friend of his bicycle manufacturer. Yellow in a beautiful shade.
198x: underage champion of Belgium on a fancy silver bicycle.
198x: Team Expert - they also have silver bikes.
1981: Daddy teaches his son to ride a bike (random people and random bikes, cool outfits)
1982: Capri Sonne - silver again.
1983: Winning - Merckx - Campagnolo, Tour of America 1983. Professional in borrowed trousers - red frames (probably)
1983: Europe Decor - light blue frame.
1984: Europ Decor - yellow frame, the colour used later by the Lotto.
1985: Tonissteiner - pattern brutally copied from FAEMA (same colors - really)
