Marin made an FRS that was that shape VERY briefly, but I haven't seen enough to judge.
Even though the fork and shock are ok, the SIS rear mech puts me off....

I Think that might be a genuine Nail FRS frame.
If not it's very close.

In fact the more I look the more likely it seems.
If that was local I'd be having that as a resto, it really needs some tlc and that awful paint job sorted back to it's polished glory.
There's not many of them about.

The shock is the original fox that would have come with the frame new They appear on ebay for a few quid as they were fitted to loads of frames at the time so It would be a shame to part them as it looks like thats the only original part.


It's just too far, if someone would collect and post.........
