So, I picked up this on an auction and I really only want it for the forks/stem/groupset - when I got the bike the frame was nice and clean and someone had obviously cared for it because it had a nice new blue metallic Mercian paint job - not cheap!! It doesn't look like it had a hard life since...
When we lived in Wellington in NZ I went to Sydney to pick up a bike frame - had a lovely weekend there too
that's nearly 5000km
thank god it turned out nicer than in the photos - cant remember what it was though - maybe a NOS clark kent from memory
