thanks for those pics. I recall flipping out when I saw it in the wild back "in the day". really great aesthetic + the iconic merlin name. that this was you dad's? that is just a story that cannot be topped.

New wheels from Old Potatoe and some Compass skinwalls. Love the classic look of silver spokes.

Nice bike. Think about selling the King headset cause it won't wear out, and buy something that goes with the overall.

Merlins of that vintage has the ultimate metal aesthetic, IMO: not too old, not too modern.

Its not you. I am having a hell of a time getting comfortable on that Brooks.
Pain, no issue. Sliding forward and too much weight on my arms sucks.
