This may be a repaint and redecal of an older and lower grade Merckx. Any USA market Merckx circa 1989 should have the investment cast seat lug, chromed dropout flats, dual bottle bosses and a pump peg, none of which appear on the subject bicycle. Features like bottle bosses and pump pegs could vary from market to market but I'd think that the investment cast seat lug would be consistent across all markets. I also notice that one of the brake cable ports is on top and the other is on the bottom, which is also atypical for the 1989 models.
