Merckx TI AX geometry-headtube length on 59, 60, 61 cmeflayer

I am trying to find out the headtube length on 3 year old Merckx TI AX frames. It seems Merckx and Gita don't publish this information for some reason. I'd like to know the headtube length on a 59, 60 and a 61. Anyone have these frames or know the lengths.?

A 59cm c-c frame will have a head tube length of approximately 175mm (Lemond for example). Larger frames should have head tubes that increase by the same amount as the frame size.

If you are buying a used or NOS frame, the seller should be able to measure it exactly. That's what I would insist on before purchasing.
