Old is Good
Ooh. I can't wait.
Looks like a Mercian. I ordered one this year as well. Still can't decide on the color though.
I knew more happened on your visit than you were letting on about.....
Christmas colours! Early Noel!
It's actually an old one, but needed some repairs and new paint.
From our buddy near Newark, Ohio?
Not this time - Mercian did this one.
I was heading towards the comments to ask if it was a refurbished old frame. Looks great, can't wait to see the progress on it! I wondered where those new wheels were going. (I'm assuming this is where they'll end up?)Wolf.
More pictures coming soon. Yep - this is where those wheels are going. Got a full Super Record group from about 80-81.
Congrats! You're happy man!
Very pretty ! bubble wrap doesn't sufficiently protect a bike, at least one you care about :-) Pipe insulation is available $2 for an 8 foot section, well worth the cost. Also when you pack your bike, get a 2nd box and cut it up, putting additional side panels down inside the box.
Good advice on the pipe insulation... I'll use this for my Bike Friday when packing for travel.
Another suggestion for packing, I cut up heavy cardboard tubes equal to width of box and rubberband them around frame tubes covered with pipe insulation, before sliding the frame into box. Great job of stopping box compression...One Charlie Roberts, two bikes from son Chas, Mercian 531, and Torpado slx. Really enjoy the blog!William Schmitt
