Built using all new and good quality components. Frame, handlebars (which are in excellent condition) and handlebar stem (also in good condition) are the only non-new parts.
Built around a lovely steel Eddy Mercx* frame with stylish lugs. Nicely aged and in excellent condition I did consider a respray but it would be a shame to lose its patina. The old frame looks fantastic with all new parts fitted and it rides superbly well, it’s a comfortable and very cool bike which draws admiring looks from everyone who sees it.

Please note: I can replace the handlebars and stem with new items if preferred for an extra £25 but both are in really nice condition so I didn’t feel the need to do so for this conversion.
* The frame is old and badged as an Eddy Mercx but I have no way of confirming if this is actually the case. I can see no reason why it wouldn’t be, it’s nicely made and came to me in original geared configuration. All the original components are available to the buyer of this bike at no extra cost if required.
Unridden apart from a 100 metre test ride since being built. I build lots of bikes to this specification and they ride really well. Chainline is spot on and with all new components you can be confident this bike will last and continue to ride perfectly for many miles.
If this one is not for you but you have a frame you’d like converted in the same way please contact me for details and price. Read More …
