WTS: (MEL) MERCKX FRAME IN NEED OF LOVIN'

Postby simonsausage » Fri Nov 02, 2012 2:31 pm

SO.....I got a little (ie: very) drunk a while ago and when i woke up found I'd bought myself a Merck Strada frame and forks using my smart phone.
Not very smart, because it is way too big for me - Never drink and e-bay!
So now I must pass it on to fund an Eddy that does fit me.
By my measurements the dimensions are:
Top tube: 57cm
Seat tube: 57.5cm C-C. 59.5 C-T
the Head Tube is 15.7cm
Under the bottom bracket on non-drive side is stamped "N8", the final number POSSIBLY denoting it as a 58cm.(??)
Now, before you get too excited, it does have some rust issues.
The tubing is all straight and dent free. But the frame and forks have a fair deal of scratches and chips.
Of most concern though, are the cable guides on the top tube which are rusted and there is bubbling of the paint indicating rust around the guides.
Similar bubbling is also on the ends of the head tube.
So ideally it'd need a sanding and new paint job. Or it'd make a bloody good pub bike as is, if you couldn't be bothered.
Asking $300
Have a look at my pics and if you are keen, come and have a look in person. I'm in Brunswick.

I have some bits and pieces to help you build it up too if needed.
