I recently bought an old merckx frame on ebay as a project for the next few months. Before I start buying parts I would like to identify the model and year of the frame.

Photos can be found here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/73713283@N ... 131403314/

Any ideas?

Thanks
Richard

We used to sell frames like that in the 70's, mass produced by Falcon under a licencing agreement. Fork boss on the right so looks like a UK model but I only remember the orange ones.........
