Gareths bike

Hi,  here is a photo of my Mercian,  I bought the King of Mercia frame from John's Bikes in Bath back in early 1981. ( Frame made in 1980 )  I recently had the wheels rebuilt for 700c using the original Campag record hubs, with new brakes and pedals. Now it goes better than ever. I still remember the first time I took it out on the road way back in the summer of 1981. You feel a wonderful sensation when you ride a Mercian for the first time. Thank to Mercian. and to Tony, who might have been the one who built my frame.   Cheers,  Gareth in Newport , Gwent. South Wales.
