Although I currently have two other projects that must come to an end however as I mentioned, hereby I start my first titanium build.
I always said if I ever build a titanium bike, then there can be only one ...just a Merlin.

And now after endless hunt, I got it :D :D

I hope this will be an interesting build.

Good luck with the build

I'm just looking for a matching fork for this beautiful frame.
