I have acquired a bike(Going to the tip!) through an elderly relative and just wondered if it was worth rescuing.
Any advice would be great

Thanks

I know bugger all about road/touring bikes, but even I know the name Eddy Mercx!!

I would say that it's definitely worthy of a bit of TLC 8)

Looks like a Barton-on-Humber built Mercx / Falcon. They acquired the rights to use the name in the lake 70's and built them alongside Falcon's.

Should have a picture of his mug on the downtube and headtube..black and white and taken from a newspaper shot LOL

Have a google
