Sir Paul in Japan

We recently been sent these pictures by our mates at Paul Smith.  It looks like Sir Paul certainly enjoyed his trip to Japan.
 That looks like my size of ice cream.

 Sir Paul riding his Mercian. This colour scheme is my favourite.

Maybe hiding from the paparazzi :)

Andys King

The attached photo may be suitable for your gallery  It is of me and my moss green pearl KOM (frame 852007, made October 2007) in Tibet at the top of the Lhakpa-La, a pass of 5262m, with Buddhist prayer flags fluttering in the wind. Mudguards removed so as to accept Travel Contact 37mm tyres, and handle bars changed to Modolo butterfly bars, which were great for riding from Lhasa to Kathmandu.

Many thanks for a great bike, which is well travelled.


Gareths bike

Hi,  here is a photo of my Mercian,  I bought the King of Mercia frame from John's Bikes in Bath back in early 1981. ( Frame made in 1980 )  I recently had the wheels rebuilt for 700c using the original Campag record hubs, with new brakes and pedals. Now it goes better than ever. I still remember the first time I took it out on the road way back in the summer of 1981. You feel a wonderful sensation when you ride a Mercian for the first time. Thank to Mercian. and to Tony, who might have been the one who built my frame.   Cheers,  Gareth in Newport , Gwent. South Wales.
