.. What are you doing for a wheel set?

well the only thing I don't like from xt-737 group, are the hubs! so I'd rather take the fh-m732 and hb-m730 with araya rims

FWIW I think those P2s look fantastic on the Marin frame. Good choice. I'm putting some Specialized Direct Drive forks on my Overbury's as I think the original forks are bent. As long as it's more or less period and what we might have done back in the day...

My favourite ( 737 ) drivetrain but with spindly, Old Skool hubs. That's how I'd like to build it! Lovely bike and an inspiring thread, keep the photos coming mate.

I never realized just how nice the welds were on those old Marins. That is a very nice bike. Good luck

this Marin with the P2 fork not only looks fantastic but also drives well. It's much more agile.

That's beautiful - probably the nicest Marin I've seen. And it isn't even finished yet... :shock:
