58cm Halfords Bike Frame

It's a Halfords re-paint that has gotten De Rosa decals slapped on it. But it's no De Rosa. It's also not claimed to be a De Rosa, nor priced as a De Rosa. The lugwork looks pretty nice, so it probably is made of butted steel tubes - probably Reynolds 531 since it's British. Given the unknowns, it's probably priced on the high end of fair market at $125. To me, a mystery 531 re-paint frame, if it was my size, might be worth $75-100 if I was looking to do an economical steel custom build.

That's what I was afraid of. Appreciate the reply

[h=2] Merlin Mountain Bike - 17 in - vintage - $1250 (Newton) [/h][FONT=inherit][FONT=inherit]












For sale is a 1989 (?) Merlin mountain bike, manufactured in Somerville. Here's the details:

- 17 in titanium frame
- NOS Suntour XC pro canti brakes
- Suntour XC cranks (175)
- Shimano 8spd XT rear derailleur, XTR front derailleur
- Mavic 317 wheels (26in), XTR hubs
- Bear trap pedals
- Syncros seatpost
- Custom Nivacrom fork, 1in treadless
- Chris King 1in headset. New bearings, installed by Chris King.

Currently the bike is set up with mustache bars (One Off), a Ritchie Pro stem, Cane Creek road levers, and Dura Ace 8spd bar end shifters. I also have, and am selling as part of this bike:

- Original Ritchey Logic fork (threaded). Includes Chris King lock nut for headset
- Titec titanium flat bar
- Salsa 1in quill stem
- NOS XC Pro levers
- Pauls Thumbies to convert bar end into thumb shifters

Basically, you can keep this bike set up for commuting/touring/rando or set it up as a classic rigid mountain bike -- you'll have all the components to do both.

This is frame number 2436. Best as I can tell, this frame was built in the late 80's. It's in great shape overall. Wheels have very low miles.

Email with questions. These are pretty rare, so no low ball offers or trades. Thanks for looking.

OK... they're dangerous.... But I still think they're cool and I admire the craftmanship involved. I guess they're not factory, but it seems odd that there are
no other drilled parts on the bike.... chainrings, not even brake levers.

Not much craftsmanship there, imo. Just a milling machine used to slot the arms. The (notorious, lol) Drillium Dude on these forums does some pretty neat work though.

there is misinformation that the look frames were litespeed built - as far as I can tell, someone said that once on the internet and it caught on. I am pretty sure they were made in Spain by a company that no longer exists. as it goes.

but I hear you, id not pay 1900 for one since a Merlin is probably way better! and I prefer the kg282 with the matte finish... but finding one is like.. forget about it.
