The Mercian Superlight has cut lugs to the minimum save weight. Available for road or track.

The tubes are carefully hand-mitred and lugs filed into shape to fit together perfectly before being joined skillfully with brass fillet brazing.  The seatstays are “shot in” to neatly join the allen key seat lug.

The Superlight can be built with either standard size tube or Oversize tubing if required at a small extra charge.


Finish – standard finish is one colour of your choice with Mercian transfers to your choice. Additional colours or bands (see price list or contact us with your requirements for details).

Enamelled metal head badges also available.
