Well, the gamble really paid off and I am a very happy boy tonight.

Went to pick up the PM tonight. The seller was a really genuine bloke and had bought the bike new in late 1988.

From what I can see the bike has hardly been out. It even has the ghost of the Marin logo on the side of the gel saddle. I think mine wore off first time out.

Stopped on the way home and just took some quick pictures. It all needs a good clean and lube up but everything works great. The thumbies still have the protective cling film stuff on the top.

I will post up more pics once I have cleaned and serviced.

Mark,( a very happy bunny tonight)

Yep. Really pleased with it. My other 89 is quite tired having been used and abused for 24 years. Put this on the wall rack next to it and it looks like some sort of resto before and after shot.

Got the new one from a really nice guy and he was pleased it had gone to an enthusiast as he had really got used to it sitting in the corner of his bedroom for almost 25 years. It looks like it was wrapped in his duvet for 25 years.
