Yup, don't want to be a sheep but it's got to be the Hei Hei - simply stunning! Nice one Jez!

(even with the slicks - a bit like great legs in trainers instead of high heels, or is it just me? :shock: )

I think Carsten's Merlin should be excluded - He's obviously "photoshopped" the welds on that frame! :wink:

Only joking - beautiful frame :D

yup, the welds are unreal :D

it took me alot of time to get the frame into that condition. it was very used and scratched up...

btw, that's how they look like on the very early (1988) Merlin frames, quite a difference!

Cheers, Carsten
