Thorn Mercury 610L in Gunmetal Imron††
« on: August 31, 2018, 11:26:50 PM »
Bought new, by me, direct from Thorn / SJS Cycles in March 2017 at a cost of £3,681.34 - No expense was spared on the parts which you see listed below.

Itís hand built and Rohloff Speedhub equipped - a strong, supremely reliable, silky smooth, speedy sports tourer which is an absolute joy to ride.

It has only been ridden for ca.1,000 miles and is in pristine / outstanding (virtually as new) condition. It has been regularly serviced (twice yearly inc oil changes) and meticulously maintained.

It should be noted however that the rear rack is slightly marked from pannier rubbing and the chainring arms show some scuffing.

The bike is located in Padstow, Cornwall and I would prefer it to be collected - I will however post if required. Iím happy to answer any questions and any inspection / test ride is welcomed.

The size is 610L so itís for the taller (6ft plus) rider.
