I paid £800 for a 1990 complete Mercian, same frame different groupset. Mercian frames do fetch a lot, I have watched a few lately, but this one is flying away.

You never know though what can happen on Ebay. I have sold a pair of brake levers previously for £150, just because I was lucky enough to get two buyers fighting over them (both emailed asking for buy it now stating how much they wanted them). I was expecting about £30. Maybe this is the case here, just listed at the right time.
