Mercian of Derby England have been hand building frames from Reynolds
tubing since 1947. This frame set dating from 1979 has only minor differences
from their current King of Mercia offerings. Current versions use Reynolds 631
instead of the Reynolds 531 tubing of this frameset. Top tube cable guides are
different. Current versions have drop out spacing of 130mm rather than the
126mm of this frameset and the horizontal drop outs on this frame set cost extra.
Oh, and the biggest difference is the cost - about $1700 for a new frameset.
If you have ever wanted to try out a Reynolds 531 frameset here is your chance to do
so at a reasonable cost. The build quality of this lugged , Reynolds 531 double
butted frameset is exceptional.

If you are reading this ad then the frameset is still available, no need to ask.
