For 3 hours work at the tip, I received nice almost perfect Marin palisades trail. Looks to be a 18".


The rear drop outs are quality and deserve better components than the Acera stuff currently in use.

Sadly no wheels to go with it but I will have a play with what I have.

thinking black M563 LX mechs/ shifters?

Its been about 7 years since I last saw a decent Marin at the tip, my last one was a pretty high end model that I turned into a summer beach cruiser...

Black Lx should look good I think.

Are your barends on upside-down or is it just the way they're hanging?

My girlfriend thinks i love DIY because I'm always offering to take things down / apart / rip them up around the house and take to the skip, but its only so i can see if anyone is stupid enough to have thrown a classic out :D
