FS: Merckx MXL size 54; one last try before e-bay

Selling a beautiful Eddy Merckx MXL. Build with a mix of silver alloy Athena crank and rear derailleur, Chorus skeleton brakes and 10 speed shifters, and record front derailleur. Speed Dream wheels that are White Industries hubs laced to Velocity rims. Cinelli Ti Grammo stem. Chris King head set. The bike is in immaculate condition. This seatpost does NOT come with the bike. I have a variety of seatposts and saddles.

I AM willing to part out.

Asking $1700 + shipping for the full bike.
Or, $900 shipped for the frame and fork.

color scheme?

Nice bike and interesting color scheme. Any idea what team used those colors? I have a Caloi in the same colors but with chrome. Even has the top tube pin stripe.
Just wondering.

Team Lotto 1994 used Merckx re-badged as Caloi (like the one you own).

Bump,
Sale fell through so for sale again. Frame and fork, or complete bike.

Mxl

Can't believe this hasn't sold. You don't come across an mxl that often - and this color is awesome. If it fit me it would be mine!
