Merckx built Titanium bikes for a few years, the first of them manufactured by Litespeed in the US.
This is one of those bikes, a 1995-built 57cm, with a Dura-Ace 7700 gruppo and carbon forks.
I’m not sure the restoration is finished yet, it needs some more red bits 🙂
Yep, that’s a pair of 1980s Carbon/Alloy bars.
This bike is a permanent part of the MV collection, and is not for sale.
