Merriam Cycles

Does anyone out there know if someone has taken over Merriam Cycles? I' m kinda new to this forum and noticed they are on the links page. I am really looking for the Weisco 1196 cc kit. I. thinking about giving the old 78 a little more courage??

No, it's gone but not forgotten.

Some of us are still doing some service work out of our shops at home though.

I sent you a PM with Bohn Frazier's email address. He is helping them sell all their stuff.

I don't think that Merriam Cycles is going to be re-opened for business. I think that they might still have some parts and stuff that is being sold off. Bohn Frazer or Russ79 would know more as they have been helping Bob's wife with all of this.

The voices in my head are giving me the silent treatment.

'79 Standard
'82 XJ1100
'84 FJ1100
