Figured i'd best open a new thread.

I purchased this lovely Merckx of mr Omegastrada last week. I was very silly with my sizes and it is sadly too small.

Pictures and details can be found on original posting here:
http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=233805

£320 posted secures.
Frame, fork and modified 600 ultegra headset included.
I have a tricolour 600ultegra groupo available too if desired.

Where is the frame, and you for that matter?

latman,
to accommodate the short fork steerer, the lower nut of the top race has been machined down so that the top nut can screw against it. It has been done well, but was the only disappointment i had on opening the box as i'd planned on fitting a campy unit.

Functionally it works and cosmetically it looks fine.
