While the Victory gruppo is Off-Topic, as I pointed out to Paul, I think this frame is very much KOF. Anyone know the story of this frameset? It is pantographed all over, and pretty nicely, I might add, as Eddy Merckx, but the decals are something different. Was this an economy line sold by Merckx? The Cromor tubing and the second tier gruppo, whose name I wiil not say again, suggests this. But IMHO this frame is very nicely made for an economy model. I've noticed before that many Italian builders have a talent for building extremely nice framesets from slightly less expensive tubesets. Merckx may have been influenced in this by his long association with many of the top Italian builders.
