I'm mad excited about taking delivery of a new frame! :D :D :D

BITD (1993) I bought a Marin Team Issue which I loved. Unfortunately some scumbag mouth-breather lowlife stole it. I was devastated.

It was insured though, and I bought a lovely Pace RC200F3, which I still ride.

But I always missed the old Marin. Well, a frame came-up on ebay, and it is now in my possession! It's pretty battered, but it's mine! Planning to build her up as my commuter. I have the original forks and h/set from my bike from '93 (I put RC35s on at the time).

It's not going to be the XTR bling lovelyness that I once owned, but I'm still chuffed to bits. :D

Yeah, it's a bit shabby, but seems structurally sound :D
We're you bidding?

I was the bid below you, I was 50/50 on it and only really had a punt because it was my size.
Glad to see it's gone to a fan and will recieve some TLC.

I was a bit surprised I won it! I wondered if anyone else on here would be bidding :)
Big fan though, and they don't come up all that often.

It will get some TLC, built into a bike, then ridden. Hard. :D
