We recently refurbished Kyle Brooks' 1979 Mercian, now built up. Painted Bianchi Blue with Cream head-tube. "I'm very pleased with how it came out. I built it up with an eclectic mix of new old-stock parts, including SunTour Cyclone derailluers, TA Cyclotouriste crank, Weinmann brakes, Nitto bars and stem, old Shimano Deore ratchet shift levers, Campagnolo hubs, and the fattest tires I could fit into the frame. Also note the Brooks saddle, and newly re-released Brooks saddlebag. Thanks for another fine bicycle! Kyle Brooks"
