Don't blame the phone. You just haven't taken very useful shots with it. Are there no decals on the frame?

The white sticker is for Ultimate Superlight! It could be a 93 Team Marin or Team Issue, but I can't see any cable stops on the head tube, and I can't match up the cable stops with any year really.

Nope there was no Decals on the Frame just the "Tange Ultimate" Decal.
The frame is polished and not painted ...
If i get a chance will take some more pictures of the frame ...

What makes you think it is a Marin then? The serial number is not like what you see on most Marins.

If it's steel, it could be plated, but not polished.

Good point actually, I only went team on being told it was a marin. There are no confirming features visible that it is indeed a marin at all.
