That Merckx could be a great find for somebody in the market for a nice travel bike that size--install S & S couplers and replace the damaged parts, should be a lot less expensive than a whole frame...looks to have nice horizontal dropouts too...make a very nice traveling fixed gear...no, I've already got almost too many bikes, and it's not quite my size...
