More Eddy Merckx


Here is Eddy Merckx again, during his triumphant attempt at breaking the hour record distance by riding 49.431 km in an hour.

Although adorned with Windsor stickers at the time, the actual bike used during the record is now well-known to be a highly custom Colnago Pista equipped with various parts of magnesium and titanium that were provided by Pino Morroni.
