Oh my. That’s a freakin horrible loss.
Keep in mind everything we heard is hearsay. Only Bernard and those involved with storage unit auction know the real story. Apparently, Bernard forgot to pay the fee on that unit, so it wasn't that he couldn't pay it. Just an unfortunate oversight on his part.

I hope he was over there bidding on it! That sucks.

I was going to buy the Merlin Newsboy, third hand, but was able to get Bernard in touch with the new owner, so that he has a chance to get that one back.
Of all of the bikes that Bernard has had, that's one the you would be hard pressed to find another. (At least, at a decent price.)
My guess is, that is one of those bikes that will be a holy grail in the future.

I like the story Bernard told me how are you acquired that bike. he seen it on the street. Chase the guy down and bought it right there on the spot.

Does anyone know if Bernard is ok? I’ve spoken with him several times. We both have a keen interest in aluminum bikes.

There was a 1994 issue Merlin Newsboy in there that showed up at our local Cycle Swap last Sunday and the guy sold it for $800 bucks!
As far as I know, they only made 100 of those.
It's a pretty amazing bike, when you think how hard it must have been to bend the tubing to build an all titanium cantilever mountain bike frame.
That thing should be up in the Marin Museum of Bicycle History.
At last Sunday’s Swap for $800 ???
Are you serious ?
