Hi all...

I'm long overdue in doing a proper intro / work in progress post!!

I've got a 1995 Marin Indian Fire Trail which originally caught my eye when I was getting a bike serviced by a bike recycling charity - I had to have it and the rest is history!!!

If you're a purist and everything has to be original, then please look away now.....I got it to ride it and have added some bits & pieces I like, but maybe not everyone's taste....

Having said that, I have got some other original parts to go on (Marin blue canti brakes and the proper brake shifters) when I get the time and the inclination - I've also got the original white industries cranks, but not the chain rings.... (thanks to anyone I've purchased some bits off!)

Anyway, this read is useless without pics!!!

Cheers n' beers

Thanks Drew - interested to see your build as well...

Can't believe your brother would simply give away a bike like that!

Yeah, the forks in particular were spotless - only the odd little stone chip here and there on the whole frame :D :D :D
