Snipped from the Bob Jackson website. "On his return Bob restarted his old business and soon built up successful line of lightweight racing cycles, as well as building frames for many of the well known cycle companies of the day. The purchase of the historic "Merlin" brand in 1955 brought new life to this classic marque & soon there were parallel ranges of "JRJ"s & "Merlin" frames. By 1964 The "Bob Jackson" special edition framesets & cycles were starting to make their mark & were featured in the 1964 catalogue."

This implies that Bob Jackson decaled bikes started in 1964 (or slightly before) and that bikes made by Bob Jackson from 1935 to 1964 would have had JRJ or Merlin decals. Anyone know whether this is true? Lou Deeter, Orlando FL
