But it's quite lovely anyway.

That Merckx is perfect (for me anyway). Check the deep bars. I'd take the poly-bag off the seat first though. Not the best look.

I was looking at the deep bars as well. Is this what is known as a 'Belgian drop'??

Nice eh? Merckx used this style. So did loads of 'big' riders. I got a pair of Mavic SSC bars in the 80's with the same drop. 50cm wide too and VERY comfy. They're much better than the anatomic style of today but watch the extension to the brakes because the bend is shallow.
