Merlin (Bob Jackson) Racing Cycle- For Sale- SOLD

It's a stunning frame

Here we have 48 cm’s worth of heaven A stunning Merlin bicycle handbuilt in Leeds.

Originally it was Merlins of London, but the 2 brothers who built the bikes were heading for retirement and no one in the family wanted to take over. The old boys were forced to sell and Adam Hill (who built the Hill special) took over.

Many years passed by and then in 1955 Adam sold Merlin to Bob Jackson and  production moved up north. And that was that.

The pink Merlin is dripping in Campag. Record. This is going to be sold as a complete bike and will be built to spec. It’ a pink dream, it really is.
