On Craigslist...tough to say because it's just hard to get max value on pricier bikes with CL, and it can be more luck dependent. SF is also likely a better market than mine...

I'd list it at $800 and see what happens.

Size is 56cm.

Thanks for the replies. There's a Merckx Corsa Extra frameset only on eBay for $1000. Some completes going for $2500, but those have full c-record w/ the delta brakes.

Check the sold listings not what they are listed for.

Agreed. Market is not too interested in Athena/Mirage right now, and there are plenty of other high end Merckx bikes out there - some with more compelling paint schemes- with DA and SR with which you will be competing.

Data point: I recently turned down the opportunity to purchase a pristine MX Leader in Team Telkom livery with full DA for $1200. So, there's that as a comparison.

Not that your bike isn't very nice, just that the market sucks right now and there's a lot of competition for vintage bike dollars.

My buddy just built a Corsa Extra and gave $400 for the framset. About the same price as my Waterford Paramount frameset and there is one of those for sale on BF right now for $900 that hasn't budged. As others have mentioned, the components on your EM detract from the value.

You're in a better bike market though so I agree with the suggestion above to list at $800 and see what happens.

Nice Merckx. Hate the stem. Is it SLX or TSX tubing or something else?

I purchased a complete Corsa Extra with Dura Ace on eBay for $500 last year, plus $100 shipping. I put the price on the bike pictured at $650.
