A pretty rare paint scheme and I've never seen another one like it. There are the usual scratches through normal use and the seatstays show some chrome where a previous owner clearly used clip-on mudguards, but other than that it's in good condition.
I'm just selling the frameset, but here's a pic of it built up:

Warwick Avenue area in the evenings
Is this the whole bike or frame and forks?
Is 57cm centre to top seatpost or c-c?
Just frameset. 57cm is c-c.
Cool thanks, thought it was too good to be true! A touch too big for me but very nice. glws
Without wishing to hijack the thread (!), do you know if it was common for Corsa Extras of this era not to have tubing decals? I have one of a similar vintage and was concerned about whether it was actually SLX (I later found they pretty much all were) until I had a look at the inside of the tubes.
Anyway, beautiful frame and love the Belgian paintjob ;)
It’s a Merckx. They were very laid back about things, including the detailed finishing and sometimes missed off small paint details like painting lug cutouts.
I wouldn’t worry about the lack of the tubing decal - if nothing else they made the Corsa Extra from a pretty diverse range of tubing over the years. If it is missing that and the little ‘made in Belgium’ decal I would wonder if it’s had a respray though.
Is it possible to ship to Poland?
Probably. I've replied to your PM.
Hello! Is frame still available?
It's in London? Can you tell me about scratches?
What year is that frame ?anyone know :-(
Hello, is it still available?
yep, replied to your PM
Not sure... I'll get the serial number and try working it out.
Got this from the net
Here's the serial number on the bottom. This seems to confirm it's a Corsa Extra of 1985.
