Not 100% clear as to the provenance of this frame (is it a team spec one?) but looks interesting all the same.

Unusual to have the mudguard eyes on if it was destined for greatness..................

Not sure what it is, could be any generic frame stickered up as a Merckx.

All the Pro team bikes I came across had such close clearences that they couldn't take mudguards...........so the framebuilder removed them from the dropouts.

I just assumed that was the same everywhere......
