Confuses and delights: Merckx Strada with MXL tubing

Merckx Team Lotto Caloi MX Leader (ex-Frank Vandenbroucke)

$_57tlmc

This frameset belonged to the late Belgian cyclist Frank Vandenbroucke, also known as “VDB”.
It was used in 1994, when he was part of the team Lotto Caloi, his first year as a professional cyclist.

The previous owner bought this frame at the end of the season directly from the team in ’94
and was since then in his possesion until he sold it to me a couple of months ago.

The frame itself is a top of the line Eddy Merckx MX-Leader.
Manufactured with Columbus MAX tubing.
Obviously painted in the Lotto Caloi team colors.
Extremely rare collectors item in this color scheme and condition.

Measurements
seat tube: 57 cm c-c / 59 cm c-t
top tube: 57,5 cm c-c
