Ok...so here's one for the Marin enthusiasts on here.
Your chance to get hold of a 1988..yes 88! Joe Murray designed Marin Pine Mountain F&F in original silver lilac.
These are pretty rare, in fact I have only ever seen one other in the flesh..and that's also in my shed.
18" lugged Tange Prestige frame with lugged uni-crown Tange MTB fork. These were one of the first mass produced Prestige framed bikes on the market in the UK. Includes:-
Original Hatta Vesta 1" headset..feels smooth but a lttle loose, not had it apart so consider it ornamental rather than functional.
Nice MT60 Deore U brake with original pads (Pads show little wear)
Original Kalloy QR
The super cool Marin 1" roller quill stem
I will also throw in a very nice MT60 cup n' cone BB for an extra £5 if wanted. Condition:-
Overall it shows little sign of use and abuse. Check out the pics of the usual wear spots on the chainstays etc...there isn't any of any note.
It does however have numerous small surface rust spots which is not uncommon on these and especially considering it is 25 years old.
The decals on this one are also a little odd. I think it is one of the last 88 frames and these may have been dealer rather than factory applied. They are all original Marin though.
If anyone wanted to consider a restore on this then Gil_m has these decals on file and the nicer (IMO) earlier decals. Check out Harry Crumbs build thread for pics of the earlier decals.http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=166835Measurements etc
