After some time this #721 Merlin Titanium 1989 is more or less finished. Koski fork, WTB Roller cams f/r, Bullseye hubs on Araya rims, IRD seat post (repro), Merlin/Salsa handlebar, Salsa stem and 4 finger XT levers/XT shifting system.

Need some new decals and maybe a silver crankset, always some tweaking left.

Saw a pic of that somewhere else and I´m so going to copy that fork color ... was that a deliberate choice or just already painted that way? Anyway, really nice job on the bike!

It’s a Otis Guy-color. I bought the Otis frameset with an extra fork for roller cams and though that it would fit ok on this.
