just seen this on the bay of evil and the seller obviously has no clue what it is :lol:

just wondering if anyone knew what it was as Ive got a load of old parts home here that I want to use up and wondered if this frame would be worth the investment.

Pressed steel dropouts, integrated seat clamp, crimped stays with a flat pressed steel chainstay bridge with a mudguard eye bolt hole.
This, my friend is someones blatant attempt at misrepresentation. the Turner stickers are the only thing worth having here.

ooh tempting. just looking for a cheap 19-20" rigid frame. was just looking at that one because it already has forks, headset and a bottom bracket and thats the bits I dont have (and the tools :lol: -really must get me a bottom bracket tool)

none of the bits I have are good enough for a marin though - theyre only cheap ass bits I got in a bundle so was looking at getting an old raleigh or something. cheers though. if I find some extra dosh I might just be tempted.
