Like it, just not loving the white Gripshift. Black would look a whole lot better.

I agree, this is an awesome build, and a bit of an inspiration for my McMahon unicorn build too,

personally I don't have a problem with the white grippies, and I think a white flite (and even some white tyres :wink: ) will really set it apart.

Making we want a Merlin really badly now.... :wink: :roll: :) :D

That is a devastatingly handsome bike! Always loved Merlins and yours in such a nice build.
Extremely respectable weight too! Just awesome 8)

some proper outdoor pics with saddles and pedals in place. 8)

functional but i would say 85% complete. :(

still need to swap bb and crankset, get a replacement rear mech, and sort out a proper length steerer to use the bonty forks.
