Mercian 'King of Mercia' 531c Steel frame – campagnolo dropouts

I bought this about 5 years ago as a project, but never got round to it. Moving house now so time for clearout/

Lovely frame (think from the 80s). Bit of rust here and there, nice champagne colour, beautiful lugwork.

includes crank, headset, fork and seatpost

(crank caps need to be stripped out as have perished)

Seatpost stuck (never tried to remove it myself, so not sure how stuck!) 54cm toptube

CORRECTION: 56cm top tube & 56cm seat tube (centre to top)

Would make a great project for someone

please note: campagnolo record wheels in separate listing

£225 O.N.O (paypal gift) inc. shipping in UK

Sorry guys, having actually measured the frame, rather than relying on my terrible memory, I can confirm that it is 56cm top tube & 56cm seat tube (centre to top).

Come and have a look... If you don't like the Mercian there might be something else I can flog you... Moving out next week so need to be pretty cut-throat about bike / component numbers!
