That is how a Merlin should look, no doubt. Well done.

A good friend of me, I know him since 1982 and we started BMX together, had two sets of the decals bought in the 90s for his merlin. Now he doesnt need two of them, so he gives me one. But we dont know if these are the dry or wet tap decals and I dont know someone who did this job in the past and can help me to bring on the decals.

Last weekend I met Rob at the Berlin Bike Show and we talk a little bit about Merlin and the old days. He's very sure that he built this frame in 1990 and gave me an autograph on the left chainstay.

cheers
