Item specifics

Seller Notes: For 44 years old, paint is in surprisingly good condition, but there are scrateches and worn spots. Chrome is good and Mercian decals are good. Reynolds 531 decal is gone, but easy to spot from the outline where it was on the seat tube. Biggest flaw is a dent in the downtube just behind the lug. It is 5/8th inch across and less than 1/8th inch deep at the center. I checked alignment with a string and the frame is straight. The frame is steel and this is still a good rider.

 This is a 1970 Mercian Superlight frameset 57 c to c square in nice condition for it's years.  For 44 years old, paint is in surprisingly good condition, but there are scrateches and worn spots.  Chrome is good and Mercian decals are good.  Reynolds 531 decal is gone, but easy to spot from the outline where it was on the seat tube. Dropouts are Campagnolo.  Biggest flaw is a dent in the downtube just behind the lug.  It is 5/8th inch across and less than 1/8th inch deep at the center.  I checked alignment with a string and the frame is straight.  The frame is steel and this is still a good rider or restoration project! These frames consistantly sell on Ebay in the $400 to $900 range, so I have discounted this one accordingly.  You can also view a Mercian Superlight by going to Velobase and checking their frame database.  One od the rear dropout screw adjuster heads is missing, but I may have a spare I can put on.  Check out the pictures before bidding!  I have had 2 other Mercians and they are extremely well made with a fantastic road feel.  Good Luck! Pay by PayPal.  Shipping is estimated at ~$50.00.  Wait for invoice before paying to give me time to get the exact shipping cost.  Check out my other Campagnolo items for sale.  I will combine items for reduced shipping!
