I just brought this one home tonight. Pick it up on the way home from work after I saw it on marktplaats.nl last weekend. It looked mint and fresh out of the catalogue. Because of the colors I just had to have it: NEON RASTA!! :P I will call it Lucky Dube! :lol: :lol:

Here are the first pics. It is completely original. Will inspect it better tomorrow to see if it is!

:shock: Cor, that's tidy! Wish I could find a 1993 Clockwork in that condition.

Didn't Marin have different colours in different countries? Would explain the lack of Zolatone. Every UK BV I've seen up to 1992 has had black as the base colour.

Wow, what an amazing find.

Love those colours, makes my '94 look more drab than a very drab thing :D

I love it! I saw one or two of them here in Munich before but the colours were badly faded. Great find.
