The bike was made by Mercurio which is from Mexico. I knew there were bikes made in Mexico but I didn’t know there were exclusive Mexican brands. I looked at their website but unfortunately they’ve moved on to more modern braking technology.
Brakes aside this is a cool-looking bike. The black paint and way shiny chrome make for a stylish ride. Oddly it looks more modern than it probably is. The ad doesn’t indicate the actual age.
The opening bid is only $65 and the shipping is $75 so if nobody else bids I may be able to justify getting this one for myself.
