FS: 1982 Mercian King of Mercia Touring + decals

I'm parting with my beautiful King of Mercia because I'd like to fund a few other builds. I purchased this bike from the original owner who did a ton of touring with it. I built it up but mainly let it sit in storage. It's 56cm, Reynolds 531, has Campy dropouts and plenty of rack mounts. I'm also including 2 Mercian decals and some R531 decals. It has beautiful lug work and an amazing paint job. It also has plenty of patina from its touring career.

Specs:
Cinelli bars and stem
Campagnolo headset
Gran Compe non aero levers
1st gen Dura Ace brake calipers
Dura ace DT shifters
Dura ace crank
Dura ace FD
XTR RD
Shimano 600 hubs
VO touring saddle
New gravelking 32 tires (around 25 miles on them)

Price is $900 + shipping. Feel free to reach out with any questions. I'm based in Los Angeles if you'd like to pick it up.

If a buyer isn't interested in the decals, I'd want them. (Depending on their color, I guess.) Thanks!

That is a beautiful bike. King of Mercia was a sport touring machine I presume?

If I hadnít found mine, this would be nagging at me to take it home.

GLWTS!

Mercian allows you to pick the geometry. My KOM is definitely a sport tourer. But, you can get it in a more traditional touring geometry. As far as I can tell from obsessing over the Mercian website, each model has a set of options available including geometry, range of tire widths, lugs, type of brakes and braze ons.
