Paul writes, "I have an interesting Merckx frame that I picked up on eBay and is an ongoing project. But a bike that is going to be ridden. I have put a Merckx sl fork in it for the moment until I can get a Max fork. It says "Graner Design" on the top tube and this is under the clear coat, it also has pearl like dots which are not painted but stuck on but und er the clear coat. Everything is original on the frame with the number on the bb suggesting a 1992 build. Have you any ideas about this frame?"
Anyone familiar with Graner Design? Leave a comment or email me.
Note: subsequently updated with Max fork:
