RIP Eddy Merckx Elite Pista

Built and painted on-demand. A one of a kind Merckx Elite Pista from 02' with an MX-Leader pista fork (undrilled). Tight as a motherfucker. Condition is amazing - small storage scratches but no dings/dents whatsoever. I'm in love with the shape and size of the tubes. The paintjob - IMO - is nothing less than amazing. The relatively short tt and longer st fits me perfectly with my proportionally longer legs than torso. Almost like it was built for me...

This is a sad day...
If the frameset is good, you can find MAX track forks on the NJS websites, and have it repainted.

Thanks man, I appreciate it! The fork is done, unfortunately ≈ Had it checked by a framebuilder. The frame looks ok, but I haven't had it measured yet - fingers crossed! I'm looking for a replacement MX-L fork, but probably won't find a track version...
