Thanks so much. I totally lucked out on this one. The Mercier bikes are so under appreciated. This one is so sweet.

Do you refinish these frames yourself and resell them as restored completes?

I just restore them for fun...and therapy. Complete bike or partial, it just has to feel right. Total strip and refinish doesn't appeal to me. I'd rather repair the damage and match new paint with the old, touch up decals and try to preserve as much of the original as possible. I'm not big on selling, I get too attached but I'm running out of room. Gotta thin the herd soon.
