I guess now i'm officially crazy.
Instead of getting on with my one and only Marin build i got me a new bike. Since you all are guilty 'cause you made me buy another one you could at least let me know what you think of it.
I got it from its original owner who said he rode it 2 times back in 1992 through the alps and since then stored it in the back of his shed.
The original foam grips had some cuts so i put on some Ghost rubber grips. Ok enough with all of that...
