Big Tx to Mr. @sloar for a great deal.

Not a big fan of yellow but this is good, DT decals have a very thin shiny chrome border that is so cool.

This looks to be a well loved frame in pretty good shape.

Yes I got the uber long Cinelli/ Merckx stem too but no pic yet.









Also paging @CyclesMakaron

Looks great!! Should make for a nice ride. Wonder if you could change the EM graphics if you prefer a different version?

Tx!

No way dude, it's all good. I like the old script combined with the newer ones, actually like most all the graphics just not some of the colors, some are a little to "colorful".

These are under the clearcoat so no changing without a repaint which isn't happening, the paint is in good shape for the most part.

I know very little about these bikes , but it sure looks nice in yellow. I am used to seeing the orange ones . I like the writing on the steerer tube, gives it that hand made vibe. I wouldn't paint it either , what is the plan for the build?

Glad you asked, this frame may languish for awhile as the fork is the reason I bought it. The fork is going to get chromed so it can serve double duty on my other Merckx.

It is a 10th anniversary tribute bike that has a carbon fork very tastefully painted to match the frame but is still far less kosher than this will be. I traded an actual 10th frame that was way to small for it that had a flat crown fork and they could be ordered with a chrome fork so this one will be able to go on it and be more correct as well as being able to move to other frames.

The friend I got the too small frame as a complete from was a little disappointed when I traded it for the big frame, that's the other thing about this, its big enough for the fork to fit the other frame.

Here's the other two, I may use the group from the small one on this yellow frame.

Too small



Big tribute, unfinished with gorgeous paint.
