Hi, I recently acquired an old Merlin Racing Cycles bike, as shown below, and am going to have it resprayed by Bob Jackson. Was thinking it might be nice to do in original colours - does anyone know what the options were back then? Or better still anyone have any pictures of original/newly rennovated Merling Racing Cycles bikes?

Any pics of bob jackson resprays to inspire me would also be useful!

Cheers,

Joe

There's no such thing as 'original colours' with frames like this, you could have virtually any colour you wanted when it was ordered. I would say that it still has its original paint work, Jackson's paintwork is legendary for longevity so why not have it re-done as it is.
