Hi all,

Just to give you a little background; i inherited a Marin MTB from my uncle many years ago who was a keep MTB'er.
I'm assuming this bike is from the 1990s and originally it was matt black and fluorescent yellow however a friend of mine borrowed it for his son who decided to 'pimp it' with a pretty awful respray.
The bike is in pretty poor condition but i was wondering if it would be of interest to anyone before it gets scrapped.
I'm moving house so if anyone would like it, they're welcome to collect it from my garage in Winchester.

Drop me a note if you're interested and i'll get some photos up this evening.

Doug and his Marin love all over it. I was thinking of having a tinker with one just to see what he's going on about. Hey ho, I'm too slow. Couldn't get up to Winch anyway at the mo
