I wrote recently about buying a random frame on eBay here.
The restoration is now complete, and this bike is available for sale.
1999 Merckx ‘Flyer’, in Columbus Zonal alloy. Team Domo Farm Frites colours, complete with the original 1″ threadless full carbon fork.
Paint was restored in 2018 by Star Enamellers – it’s immaculate.
Currently, the bike is built as a commuter or casual ride. It runs a super-simple Shimano Alivio 9 x 1 drivetrain, with a custom 150mm crankset. This will suit a rider 152cm – 160cm.
Gearing is 12-32 on the rear for versatility, and it sports a 36/32 first gear – great for climbing hills.
With a lightweight Shimano WHR-550 wheelset and some neat blue Vittoria tyres…
It can be quite easily converted to a full-on racer, with road bars and a modern 20 or 30-speed drivetrain. Ask us for pricing on customising it specifically to your own needs.
Please contact us if you want it to be yours!
