Titanium Merckx

dura ace, ksyriums, small dent on down tube (pictured.) Litespeed built these for Eddy Merckx in the mid-late 90s. What is a fair price?

also, does anybody know how to date this frame? the others I've seen have round caps on the stays--this one has flat ones welded on. any ideas? Serial 19xxx

My guess is you're looking at somewhere between $800 and $1200.

That mark on the downtube is a small dent? Probably not that big of a deal overall, but it could turn some buyers away. You can brush the titanium, I think, but probably easiest to just leave it alone.

In KC, probably around $900. Mine is with CF fork, Ultegra and Mavic CXP 30 rims. I paid $700 for it in 2015, what I considered below FMV.

Does the frame have anything listing a country or origin?

The frame has a bit of a Litespeed look. If you could attribute it to a major manufacturer, and perhaps even a model, it could definitely help with marketing.
