Marin Eldridge Grade decals, been repainted at some point. I can't seem to find any numbers stamped on it except 'C3' on the dropout.

Front mech is 28.6mm and headtube is 1 1/8th. Other than that, I'm clueless.

What might it be worth?

HI,

Are the rear dropouts machined on the inside?

Thanks

They're basically the same except without the writing.

The decal style is 1993. The canti bridge etc look right for the date. There should be numbers under the BB if it's a Marin.

92 originally dark grey zolatone. It's the 'afterburner' seat stays that give it away
