Vintage Merckx De Rosa Fiat Tour de France 1977.
The current owner recieved confirmation from Mr Eddy Merckx about the
authenticity of the frameset. Contact with Mr De Rosa learned that this bike
can be dated in 1977. GF+ refers to BB-shell form George Fischer in Switzerland. All sizes and dimensions were measured. They proved to match perfectly with the certified bicycles of Eddy Merckx.
Many thanks to Mr. Ludwig Wynants.
