You have probabkly already thought about this, but for a vintage Merckx steel frame wouldn't a classic steel Campy bolt be more appropriate (as well as being able to be torqued more properly)? If you do insist on Ti, there is a place in Toronto (forgot the name) that sells all kinds of Ti bicycle hardware. I bought the Ti bolts and square washers for the cleats to fit my Sidi shoes there a few years ago. There is a fairly modest weight advantage, but they don't rust like the steel ones if your shoes get wet.

Still on the hunt for this part. Would love to find a couple of these Campagnolo style seat lug binder bolts

Anyone have the industry term for this type of bolt? Sex bolt? Hollow internal threaded nut? Long nut with hollow bolt???
Been trying different google searches without much luck
