Having picked up a 1983 Mercian King of Mercia Frame a couple of years ago with the aim of quickly putting together a fun vintage ride it ended up up taking nearly two years. In the end It was still kind of thrown together but at least it is rolling and the aim now is to gradually upgrade the newer parts over the coming year with more correct vintage stuff. The Drive train is a Suntour Cyclone with a completely rebuilt 5 speed freewheel (which works a treat). Shifters are Suntour Power Shifters which also work well. The wheels are campag rims albeit slightly beat up and SunTour hubs. Brakes are probably mid-80s diacompe.
Anyway for anyone interested here are some pics.
