I finally managed to finish another project rather than selling it halfway through because of advanced boredom. Thank god, i'd say because i am very happy with the outcome and can't wait to test this gentle rider.
It is a custom-made Merlin frame from late 1989/1990 with frame number #1850. Martin owns the twin with #1849. Size is perfect and it has a u-brake what i had been looking for quite a while.
Parts are mainly XT group in black, IRD stem and repro post, Merlin bar....it does look like many Merlins but i think this look suits them best. I am looking for a set of IRD U-Brakes to complement the built and maybe add a Type II as icing on the cake one day. But one shouldn't be to greedy, this bike is more than perfect as it is now.
