If you take in account what a new steel frame would cost you today, then I think the price for such a rare frame in good condition is pretty much right.

i'm sure you're right - trouble is that my head is still stuck back in the '80s!!

Interesting to see a flat crown fork on a 90's Merckx.
I know there is quite a bit of variation on bottom brackets, different types being used on the same model and I guess a 90/91 bike could have been fitted with an 80's flat crown fork.
Dating a Merckx frame is not always straight forward because they seemed to use up bits and pieces that they had left lying around the factory on later models.

i thought that you were going to say "Dating a Merckx frame is not always straight forward because they tend to jab you in the ribs and poke your eyes out when you get friendly with them..."
