Its so typical of the early 80s i think, basic and it worked.

I love putting it together from a pile of otherwise useless old scraps though. Somehow i find it more satisfying than hunting for elusive parts.

And the upshot in the end, two wrecks will get revisited, that might have ended up as landfill.

Id love to have found out the full time line of his career though.

Also, the MBUK right up, amazed me a little, Sian Roberts was doing very well on the race circuit bitd, always gave favourites like Murrell and Rowntree a run for there money, and ive only just read, the first bike she was given was a "Stock" Pine Mountain, ........... :shock:

Love the early Marins 8) I fell out of love a bit once they went all silver. I’m
Liking the modern ones now though.

So it was you who bagged that Avalanche down our way :) I was tempted.

It was Adrian, it took her a long time to realise the real value of the Rocky Mountain, certainly a lot of emotional attachment, she had owned it from new and brought it with her from Canada. With a little work it will be good to go again though.. 8)

I never paid much attention at the time, always too keen to see inside the mag. The fact it had MBUK on the front was enough for me. :oops:

Dont be shy, would love to hear your take on it...….. https://www.pinkbike.com/news/From-the- ... -2013.html

I find it interesting, the above mag advertising and its dates, if I turn over the page in the same magazine, there's his name on a frame for a Kona Cindercone.
