Bought it, the frame is in outstanding condition. Looks like it was hanging up there for a long time. Cables are all rusted but the chain is new and the rings are new. I think he was going to rebuild it and gave up. Wheels have white industries hubs. The fork actually works perfect. Top tube is a little longer than I would like but maybe with a shorter stem it will work for me.

Not sure but I believe it is a litespeed. The seat stay decal says litespeed and Merlins usually have a satin or rough looking finish while this bike is shiny and smooth to the touch.
