Mercian Superlight Frame & Forks - 1986.
The frame is 56cm.

There are a few issues -
1.Stuck seat post which is a either a Victory/Chorus aero seat post which is in the seat tube up to the aero section.

2. Head set has brinelling and needs replacing.

My LBS had an issue removing the BB and this appears to have been cut out cutting into the BB threads but I have hand fitted cups on both sides with no issues.

The paint work and chrome is in very good condition for its age with minor scratches /scuffs and chips.

£170 posted in the UK. I will consider posting outside of the UK at cost.

Wow, that is a lot of bike for the money. That just has a bit of history and enough work needed to make it someones own. ;)
Still keeping an eye out for a Jack Taylor for you.
