Huntso, you haven't any of the bits left have you... stem, saddle


Afraid not Ringo, sold it as a complete bike, even the tyres were period correct

Took me a while to find all the bits, was just waiting on a purple Seat Q/R for ages

Saddle was the Ti version if I remember correctly and full M900 groupset

Bottle it came with new was a nice touch, only thing I have left is my Marin jersey in matching colours of course

Cool, I suspect the Ti railed saddle will be hardest to source...

This one slipped from under my radar, ringo.

What a classy frame I love the brushed finish. I remember you showing me pictures of the bottom bracket area, that rust has cleaned up a treat!.



The stem and bar ends look really good, keep at it fella 8)

Which forks are fitted here chief? are they the painted '94 version?

I have a painted 94's and plated 95's (IFT) but the painted ones seem to be a closer match colourwise!
