I have here a Merckx, but there is a story to tell first.
The bike is probebly late 70's (see BB lug) and the fact that the cableguide is on top of the BB wich is for me a indication it's lat 70's.
But somewhere in the 90's the bike has been resprayed in mid 90's team colors and the have been modifications made like 2 extra eyelets for the waterbottle and a lug for the frontderr. which was not a 70's period thing (the clamp front derr was).
The hardware like grips are not correct as is the crank (veloce) and front derr.
Can anybody tell what's right and wrong on this bike and how the original paint job should be.
Also the wheels are all tubes and need to be replaced by normal rims, but what type. is the Mavic Module E2 good for the year of this bike.
Now anybody that an throw in some light is more than appreciated.
