As the sun was out and I had the afternoon spare, I thought it was about time to give my retro fleet some TLC and swapped a few bits about so that they all had the right 'period' bits.

Hope you like!

Nice. The more I see of that Coppell, the more I think you got a great deal :D

Yes, too true.

Having said that, it now has the following "new" bits;

GP4 wheels and tubs with Record Hubs
Campagnolo Aero Seat Stem (Victory?)
Turbo Saddle
Campagnolo Aero Brake Levers (Record C?)
Campagnolo Bottom Bracket and Chainset (Gran Sport)
New cables
Bar tape

So all in all, it probably now owes me more than it is worth, but it is still a lovely thing and pretty rare too...

To think, they were going to take it to the tip :shock:

I bet you won't be able to find another one though :)

I'll have to line all mine up one day and take some photographs.

Look at the fork rake on that Mercian, not a bend just the most graceful swoop :)

Class :D
