Nice Belgian Eddy Merckx frame, Columbus SL, Campagnolo dropouts, 126mm rear spacing, Italian threaded 70mm bottom bracket. The frame is probably from 1980/81, the early Merckx frames were built by, or under the supervision of DeRosa and the frame has the pointy dropout/lug join typical of DeRosa at this time. The fork is Columbus, but is not original to the frame, with Columbus dropouts. The steerer tube is short, so it will require a low stack-height headset. Obviously the frame was re-painted at some point, I would guess in the 1990's, the proper decal set can be found on eBay.
