Hi, more photos and description later.
Beautiful Mercian with some unfortunate areas of paint loss (particularly 2 areas which photos show) and small impressions/dent under downtube (no sign of fork damage, including when I dropped the fork out and looked at steerer, and rides fine, whatever happened it was prior to my ownership). Looks great though! Has brought a lot of comments and compliments when riding!
I’ve ridden this a fair bit with a 10-sp Campag groupset and Royce hubs/wheels, and it was great - only selling due to the garage filling with my kids toys and bikes, and I’ve got a 90’s Ron Cooper to fit this era of frame.
£275 posted frame, fork & headset.
£250 socially distanced collection from Bournemouth (Tier 4)
I have the build sheet from Mercian.
Loads more photos after 6pm

More... these are the other notable areas of paint damage. One part of me thinks all of this could relate to a use of a D-lock. The person I bought it off said it was her father’s, gifted to her son (his grandson) to ride to college.

And finally...

I should add, I had 25 wide tyres on here no issue (as in built photo). So ignore the 20 max on the build sheet.

Bump for this and maybe I’m off on price. Take £25 off (posted/collect).
So £250 posted, £225 collected.
