SOLD ON EBAY FOR £465


Now thought to be a Vincitore model, and more pics added further on in the thread :wink:


See this thread - viewtopic.php?f=12&t=408814&hilit=mercian&start=0

Now for sale, the info is listed in the above post but to summarise....!

Frame number is 21090 (with a 3 stamped underneath that). Frame tubing is 531 Competition, Cinelli bars & stem, Campag hubs on Mavic MA2 rims which I believe are 27", Deore XT front and rear mechs, indexed down tube shifters, Lyotard pedals, Christophe toe clips, Tange/Mercian headset, Shimano 600 seatpost, Brooks saddle, some form of SLR Shimano brakes.

22" frame. Apparently the chainset is an Altus triple, not sure why the downgrade compared to other kit...

Dad is nearly 80 and a bit of a technophobe, and I didn't take the pics, but on Weds I am seeing him and can get more if needed. The bike is for pick up only, and is currently in Ilminster, Somerset but can also be made available at mine from Weds, which is near Chippenham in Wilts. Sure he will willingly travel a bit to deliver, for instance he is near the M5, J25, also I could get across towards the M4 with it if needed...

£450 Hope that is seen as a fair price without added virus related retro tax :wink:
For future pricing ref., sold on eBay for £465...

Would prefer payment by PP or bank transfer, to save dealing in cash at the mo. Will list on eBay/FB selling pages if no real interest by the weekend...

Thanks! Utterly convinced, knowing where Dad got this from, that it is the same one I used to service and clean once a year when I worked in a cycle hire and bike shop in the late '90's. The chap who had it was meticulous. Wondering if that was how it ended up with the low end chainset, maybe that was all we had to hand and it got him back on the road at the time...

Wheels are deffo 27", strange, but true....custom build, I suppose, and for some reason that was what he wanted!

Aha, thank you! I will update the listing title and I have some more/better pics to downsize and add later on.

Think for now will keep it on here and then maybe eBay next time there is a fee deal on, but I will investigate the CTC site over the weekend.

Any interest on here...? EBay are doing a fee deal, so it will be going on there over the weekend, plus the local FB cycling selling pages...

The price looks pretty competitive, if not cheap, compared to what some on going for at the mo :shock:

Interest from further afield but not wanting to post at this point. Anyone, before I put it on eBay...? Seems a shame to not get it to a enthusiast on here :(
