Here's an 1990 Eldridge I picked up ages ago but then sold to Mikee, Beavis on his 1989 Palisades and his superb original 1991 Pine Mountain.

1997 Marin MT Vision, bought the frame and forks to use up spares, all I had to buy to finish it was tyres, shifters, grips, bottom bracket and cranks (birthday present from BF), weighs in around 29lbs, my 'I don't care bike', use it in the rain and the mud and not too worried and crashing it.

Thank you! I received the new and unpainted frame in 92, had top routed cabling installed, painted, then built it up with primo parts.

Tom Teesdale mentioned that he welded up a maximum of 25 of these frames. I consider myself lucky to have one.
