Merckx Titanium AX (unknown year)

Contemplating selling this so I can get something with a little more relaxed geo and room for wider tires. Not sure how to price it though, and I'm thinking I might get more if I part it out. What do you think?

Bought the bike on ebay with a bunch of mixed parts on it. Took it apart, thoroughly cleaned it, and rebuilt. The picture in front of the fence is after I finished building it.

Super Record 11 grouppo, Record 10 silver brakes, Ritchey Carbon Fork, Cinelli Neos Bars +Stem +Steapost, Record polished hubs laced to H Plus Son TB14 polished rims, Brooks C17 Cambium w/cutout, Fizik Microtex bar tape, Jagwire with Campy cables, 28x700c Clement Strada LGG, and a Tange IRD Technoglide headset.

I'd sell thatwhole, it's nicely set up. Put on some decals and smaller tires (those 28's look scary close to the seat tube).
Merckx prices are a little soft right now, but that's a $1000 bike all day.

The picture makes it look worse than it is. There is a 1/4 inch of room between the tire and the seat tube.

Thanks for the reply!

Litespeed built the frame. 1" head tube I believe. I had an EX Ti and loved it. One of those bikes I wonder why I ever sold.
