Eddy Merckx MXL, top tube size 54
Motorola colours, bought in 1988/89 used as my work bike, hence some paint chips, other than the chips the frame is in good condition, no dents or bent.
The best steel frame ever made, bombproof. bad knees forces sale.
£700, based in East London

Says who ? I'll admit they were excellent tho. I would like one tho. In fact theres a complete bike currently listed eleswhere for 825 notes - which compared to this listing is a veritable bargain.

Whether they're better than a Raliegh 753, or any 853 (or 953) is a debate that could go on and on.

You don't get rust and paint chips on any old £700 steel frame yer know !

(I'm currently selling a brand new old stock Raleigh 653 - cast lugs and bb - on ebay at the moment for a very reasonable £150 starting price. The thing is I want to sell the fooking thing !)
