A Wonderful Mercian

Having been a Mercian owner myself for the best part of three decades (see https://starostneradost.wordpress.com/2012/01/31/at-the-beginning/), I couldn´t resist snapping this one when I met it and its owner at Marten´s place today.TMercdowntubetransf

Very nice framebuilding, well-thought out detail and equipment, it seems to be a very able touring bike. Its owner has already taken it over half of Europe. Here are some photos which don´t need much comment.

    Ted,
    Just to thank you for your interesting posts and wish you a happy Christmas and New Year. A recent cycling acquaintance told me he had bought a rare German bike here in Tasmania. I will take some photos and send them to you . There are very few such bikes in Hobart and this one was imported by the old owner when he migrated to Australia.

    regards
