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.

Lovely, do like a Cyrene, but is it me or is the nose of the saddle getting higher and higher with every picture?!

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.

After some fitting work. Saddle issue fixed and bars dropped. This bike keeps getting better for me.

Cyrene owners.....want to trade?

Thats a beautiful Cyrene. If you or anyone out there has an engraved version without the hourglass headset I'd swap any of these for it! I've been searching for a while and once drove 4 hours to get one only to discover a dent in the rear seat stay that the owner forgot to mention

Oh man, that's just straight up seductive - I'd let anything leave my stable if it meant getting in a Cyrene.
