I don't know anything really about eddy merckx bikes but from what i can gather this seems like an amazing deal for 300 Euros.

I think so. An ergo equipped Merckx for $400 USD seems like a good deal to me.

keep in mind that shipping will probably be $200 or so, and it's unknown whether the seller would be willing to ship internationally. they may not speak english, either.

so yes it's a good deal but could potentially be a lot of effort and/or a dead end.

That is a Corsa Extra in team colours, top of the line at the time, so it would be a good bet that the components are at least Chorus, more likely Record. Use the Google translator to speak to the seller. Even if they are unwilling to ship, you could pay them a bit extra to get the bike packed up at their LBS and you could have a stunning bike for less than 800$USD

Here is that colour scheme discussed at Tear for Gears, no one seems to know which team used those colours
