The Joe Bell signature is hand painted under the clear coats. I'm thinking it's an older restoration. The bike came with a spare fork painted blue. The part of the fork that goes into the head tube...

Merckx Titanium with custom paint

Was at a bike swap two weeks ago at the local bike shop and this ride called my name. I think it's a mid-90's Merckx AX. It was done up in the Motorola colors by Joe Bell. I didn't realize who he was...
