Hello everybody!

Here are some (crappy phone) pics of my 1988 Palisades Trail complete with beautiful patina paintwork! :lol:

It is very original with U-brake, Exage Trail bits and pieces, deore thumbies etc. I have changed the seatpost and saddle (which wasn't original). I found a nice vintage looking Turbo saddle to compliment the patina paintwork.

I need to find some period tan wall tyres to finish off the look...

Ah, the one bike that would make my own collection complete... 8)

It was my first proper MTB back in '89/'90; and responsible for my enduring 'Mr Marin' monicker at the LBS I bought it from in Norwich :lol:

Wow, I always wondered if I would ever see one of these again. I could never quite fully recall what it was in the back of my mind but always remembered it however vague.
My Mum's cousin's husband had one of these and they lived in Dorset. When we used to go there to visit I would use it for the day and Adam, my Mum's cousin's son, would head out and get some great riding done. It ended up at my house for some years as my Dad bought it, but many years ago my Dad moved it on, what a shame! I love those early Marins.
