There was a frame builder down south went under the name Merlin.
Jenny who I rode with in the Manchester Students MTB club about 92-93 had a Merlin road iron. Beautifully hand-lined lugwork and chrome a-plenty too as I recall.
Nothing to do with Merlin the cheap MTB company or Merlin the titanium high end frame manufacturer though.
Oh so Mercian made them did they?
What do you want for it? Looks about my size.
