Yeah, looks like a 58-60cm, depending on how it's measured.

Mix of 600 Tricolor and Dura Ace RD. Rusty bolts galore. Left brake housing looks completely corroded through from sweaty paws. Poor thing looks very neglected.

Much as I like crazy colors that thing looks like it couldn't decide what it wanted to be. A friend has a couple of the early '90s Merckx frames in the 7-11 color scheme, which looks okay. The frame may be worthwhile after repainting, unless that particular color scheme is somehow collectible. The purple and yellow almost clash just the right way (I've used yellow bar wrap on a purple frame and it looked good in an odd way), but that reddish paint ... meh ... maybe an acquired taste thing.
