With a heavy heart I'm selling my singlespeed project based on a 91/92 Marin Muirwoods with the iconic Zolatone/fluro green colour scheme.
The paint isn't pristine, there are chips and knocks as you'd expect for a 20 odd year old bike that's actually been riddden all it's life but it's by no means a beater. The worst mark is on the seat tube where it looks like a d-lock clamp used to live (will post pic of this area later). There are also no decals as you can see.
If it sounds like I'm talking her down I'm just trying to be honest about the condition, she's a lovely bike to ride and with the "instant memory throwback" colour scheme she's a joy to have in the cave and will be sadly missed. However needs must and I need to raise funds for something new (sssshhhh, don't mention the 'M' word).
Frame size is:
Seat Tube c/c - 17.5"
Top Tube c/c - 21.5"
Now splitting out for parts, prices below are for paypal gift and include postage.
Let me know if you want any better pictures of individual parts.

Thought I’d offer these as complete to start with just in case but I will split and do just the rims at £30 if needs be. Not much of a reduction I know but the spokes were cheap and the hubs were parts bin bits so the rims are the only thing with any real value.

Araya 26x1.50 rims on Shimano hubs, early 90’s Kona spec’d basic jobs with 13/30 7 speed cassette - £20 SOLD
