Kessels Molteni Merckx low-end bike (1971)

How to identify a Kessels Eddy Merckx frame

 

I found my 1971 Molteni bike three years ago, in a hedge(!) here in Bruges. When I asked the neighbours for the owner, they told me that it was a student’s bike. A couple of weeks later I managed to buy the bike for 50 Euros. It had been converted to a fixie by the student, and on top of that, nature (the hedge) had also taken its toll.
