I should have my car back in time to collect this if anyone's interested..?

Cover the fuel and the postage, and it could be yours.... :)

They used to measure size from centre of bb to centre of top tube in those days. Thus this is a size 17.5.

I expect it measures about 19" from centre of bb to top of seat tube though, and Marins were quite long in the top tube, so this is around the same size as other makes size 19s, even though it's actually a 17.5.

Looks like a 17.5"
I have 17.5" and a 19", I thought I could tell the difference looking at them.
Yesterday afternoon I realised I haven't bought a Marin since august, then I saw this thread!

By the way how do you identify a team frame pre 1992?
