Fresh off the bike stand My 1993 Merlin Mountain with full M900.

Quite pleased with the outcome :D

Not sure wether to go with front suspension or not?

Very nice, Chris. Out of interest, what are the current forks?

Lovely. An early 90's Merlin is at the very top of my wish list.

I visited the Merlin workshop in 1993, if this is a 1993 then its possible that this frame was hanging on the wall awaiting finishing when I was there :)
