Crescent top frames from 1986-1996 were rebranded Merckx top frames. This is from the first year, sold as a Crescent 92320 in 1986. It is probably a 1985 frame, but could be older. The mix of Campagnolo SR and GS (with a NR rear mech) is probably how the first owner tailored it at the shop in 1986. A sweet ride.

Edit: After doing some more research I've concluded this is probably a 1981 frame. Title edited accordingly.

Digging the leather hoods! Are those custom?

100% Homemade

Yes, 100% Homemade. They're actually very comfortable, although they stretch a bit. I'll use thicker leather next time.


like it. Very nice. Pretty sure this is older then 85, too. Perhaps quite a bit older judging by RD/FD routing over the BB and top of CS and lack of FD tab. Needs some more vintage bar tape for sure. Perhaps a silver Cinelli 1A 120. Nice ride.
