Hi all :D

A mate at work (alpinestar222) told me about this place

"RetroBIKE what's all that about?"
"That won't be something I'm into"

he said that i should post a pic of my bike on here

"why? it's just my ald Marin!"

that was a few weeks ago and he posted my bike on he to ask the age turns out its a '94 Eldridge Grade...

pic1

alpinestar222 then showed me his Kona single speed and...

so here we are, hook line and sinker - I've been on ebay and i'm now waiting for delivery of my Marin Hawk Hill frame...

pic2

aim is to get it powder coated and build it up as a fast track/road bike with the exage running gear of an old raliegh elan road bike

i'll get some pics of the wifes rockhopper too, see if you lot can date it
i think its mid '90s all red rigid fork black rims 400LX(?) mech?

cheers for reading
