Another project :facepalm:

This is, I believe, from 1988 a Merlin Mountain, serial number 440. It needs some work doing to it, but some nice features are the Ibis LD stem, RM-2 Dirt Drop bars with WTB thumb shifter mounts and the Manitou fork which has been upgraded with springs which are a vast improvement over the elastomers.

The plan is to replace the crankset, chain and tyres, thoroughly clean most of the drivetrain and tune it and that should be it.
