My girlfriend's 1974 Mercian disappeared from the London to Paris Eurostar on Tuesday night. Eurostar are still looking for it, but it now looks very likely that it was stolen somehow from the locked cabin, probably at the Paris end.

19" frame, heavily customised (see below for a copy and paste from an email from her), really loved - she put a lot of time, attention and passion into this bike, and its loss is really cruel, so any help finding it would be greatly appreciated.

"all GB stem, GB champion du monde handlebars with yellow Bennoto tape, Campagnolo Super Record brake levers with holes (so pretty), Campagnolo friction shifters beautifully polished, with its clamp in a symmetric pyramid shape, the yellow Carradice saddle bag (limited edition), Brooks saddle (honey colour) pro women with copper, the yellow item that holds the brake cables together (that Graham found for me), the superb Campagnolo brakes with black end triangle tips, Campagnolo Nuovo Record rear mech, Campagnolo front mech (the one with 2 or 3 holes), 165 Campagnolo crankset with dust cap (super rare), 42-52 Campagnolo chainring, Campagnolo seatpost (not the one with the vertical lines forged into it, the plain one), Campagnolo headseat, and Campagnolo seat bolt, Campagnolo bottom bracket, mavic 36x36 rims with campag skewers and hubs (the ones with the black rubber thing in the middle)."

Also, the brake bridge was lowered to fit the snappy brakes. Photos below; the last one is before some of the customisation, but it's a nice shot on the Mercian website, after they photographed the bike and her at l'Eroica Britannia.
