Merckx Mexico

When was the Merckx Mexico produced? Where in the Merckx hierarchy does the Mexico belong? Was it a mid-range model, or something more high-end, or low?

The bike has Campagnolo Veloce 8sp groupo and appears to be in very good condition. What is it worth?

Colnago is a big subject. Without some images it is not possible to advise you really.
The Mexico began as an upmarket frame to the Super, SL tubing through much of the size range, chrome head lugs (but not always).
After a time it gets confusing, as Colnago came out with so many models, none superior, some inferior mostly just different.

Colnago? He's asking about the Merckx.
