Advertised as a possible Merckx (due to decals), but don't think it is. Can anybody ID what this bike is based on these photos? No pantographing, plain BB shell, four digit serial number, mid-70s?

It could be a Merckx. Apparently he licensed his name to more than one manufacturer. But personally I've never seen that script before.

Oh, also it supposedly has an English bb. And it appears that at least some of the components are not original (Shimano 600 brake levers), but I can't tell what the derailleurs are.

I think that is pretty wishful thinking on the seller's part.

Highly unlikely that it is a Merckx of any kind, but show us a closeup of the fork crown. The stay-to-dropout joints look vaguely Libertas to me.
