My Marin Pine Mountain in Green/Yellow, bought this from Ebay.

Looks like the previous owner had no love for it, the top side of the handlebar faded probably from exposure to natural factors.

The frame has little dents and scratches mainly on the top tube, the rockstar fork hasn't been spared.

The bike still has the stock full Deore DX, Marin Saddle, seatpost and the rims are Araya RM17.

Just tuned her up and put on a pair of slick 1.1 Michelin Wild Runner.
Very much looking for the first ride.

Does anyone know, which year this model was made ?

Have you checked the Serial number on the underside of the bottom bracket? The 3rd digit should be the year of manufacture. Mine is M903080543. The 0 makes it a 1990 model.

The low light setting didn't do her much justice, so here she goes again in better lighting conditions:

Yes the alternative colour "Neon-Yellow Neon-Citron Neon-Green Fade". Probably quite rare.

A201A1063

Is it third digit or character?

If it is the third digit then it is 1991.

If it is the third character, then it is a 1990.

which one is it then ? cannot find a 1990 Marin catalogue either.

rare example, nice 8)

third character, 1990. by 1991 the font and spacing was different, even hand-drawn in appearance.

this colour scheme was for 'other' europe as far as i know, we didn't get it in the UK.

looks good anyway. we got "zolatone 2000". for superior wear tolerance* :roll:





*for the first five years of purchase.

cheers.
