hi guys
This is my 1991 Team Marin replica, well, is not mine, the owner is my son
I have a 91 Team Marin so I decided to make one for my son
After many test I found a green for the paint job. due to this bikes are very heavy I decided to make a set of cranks and change many pieces like brakes, bar, stem, chain..

Nice job, I bet your son is stoked.

I wouldn't mind seeing a picture of yours in this colourway for possible repaint inspiration bud. Or even yours and your sons side by side. 8)
