Very nice! I like that Italian parts can go on a Japanese frame but not the other way around. I also agree with vxpro about the cable routing.

Chauner's bike has been on eBay several times in the past, not sure if it's the same seller or not. Thanks for all the kind words, and yes those are (were?) Nervex lugs. The headlugs give it away.

It would make much more sense as a Falcon Merckx. Cool frame, and it would be sorta fun to get it re-sprayed in Molteni Orange with some new decals.

Still a good idea to have some sort of foot retention. If your foot slips off a pedal on a fixed gear, it's come right back around to smack you in the shin and you'll lose a lot of control.

I much prefer the Mavic CXP 33 over the Velocity Deep V. Lighter, stronger (eyelet'd), and better looking (IMO). Also, the Deep V is notorious for denting at the sidewall.

Did you pull the locknuts to try and find a date code? That could help narrow down some possibilities.
