Are these really Team Marins?

Nope. They are 1991 Muirwoods. The catalogue scan in the ad shows a 1992 Team frame.

I thought it was something like that.
Thanks

No, the seller seems to have missed the fact that the frame colours are completely different, well, the green is in different places.
So... 2x 1991 Muirwoods with Exage 200gs, rather than 1992 Team with xtr/xt!!

I'm no expert on Marins, but the component quality gave it away for me.

Sent them a message via ebay. Hopefully a genuine mistake.

A pair of nice clean original Muirwoods though (if you like that sort of thing, and certainly not for £180).

Hmmm....also one is 16 the other is 19 but hey ho. Actually that gen Muirwoods had a very tidy frame. The blue one preceding had tange I think - lovely geometry.
