45 Eddy Merckx Corsa Extra

Just bought this frame on ebay. It's actually the tallest frame i've bought and the biggest available size (64). The Columbus decal leads to SLX, but I'm very convinced that SPX was used. Sadly though it got a lot of scratches, mostly due to transportation (the pre-owner took it to italy). I stripped my Somec and put all the Dura Ace parts on this Eddy, creating a very clean build up. I'm very looking forward to ride it!
