Eddy Merckx Grand Prix-Reynolds 753

1988 chromed Reynolds 753 Merckx in a rare camo green colour scheme. Built to look like a traditional 80's road bike with downtube shifters, and pedals with clips and straps. However wheels are classic hubs laced to new wider rims and 28c tyres, so has an incredibly comfortable 21st century ride. Slightly more modern dual caliper front brake too for improved braking.

An absolute gem! I keep coming back, it's such a mesmerizing green color. What is the frame size? Campy C-Record cranks would be a worthy upgrade, imo.
