Kessels Merckx 3th generation racebike, How to identify

Submitted by dciadmin... on

Vintage Kessels Merckx frame,  third generation 1977 - 1979, how to identify a high-end frame?
It is always a subject of discussion. The thread running through every story is: Kessels did not make
frames but imported them from framebuilders. Vaneenooghe in Ruiselede and Gaston Orlans in Gistel, both in West Flanders Belgium were two of the builders. 
On the photos below you can see only high-end Kessels-Merckx framesets  similar to the ones
Eddy Merckx used in different races between 1971 and 1977.
