1998 Eddy Merckx track #11.

A rather special one. After i recieved a tip from Gerard a fellow collector and fanatic of the vintage steel. Thanks again Gerard. I made contact with the seller and made an appointment with the seller. The seller told me that only 5 of these were made. A day after i picked up the frame i posted a couple of photos on a Dutch-Belgian forum. An Belgian guy said that it could be possible that this frame was made for Belgian road and track cyclist Etienne de Wilde. Since this frame dates back to 1998 it is most likely that this frame was made then for the summer Olympics in Sydney 2000. But he never got to use the frame, Etienne said that the frame was to much "flexing" . This same Belgian guy used to race on this frame and he actually won a national 1km pursuit race. . . In the meantime i try to get in contact with Etienne de Wilde, and im awaiting his reply to confirm if this frame was made for him. He competed at the summer Olympic games in Sydney 2000. Where he got a silver medal at the madison race. . . Frame came with the original headset, bottom bracket and seatpost. 52cm center center 56cm center top 56cm top tube
