You ought to get that cabled up properly & the brake pads setup before riding it. Nice bike all the same...........

Yes, the brake pads need setting correctly, but what's wrong with the cabling? It all works fine.

Great thread, just read it from the beginning....... and what a final result! Top work Sir 8). IMO 1990 was the best year for Marin.

Beautiful job mate, incredible finish. Do you mind me asking a ball park figure on how much the restoration ended up costing? You seemed to have been able to salvage a lot yourself.

I didn't really keep tabs on what I was spending, but I reckon the entire project probably set me back around £500… Not much less than the bike cost me back in 1990!

Cheers! I haven't touched the bike since it was finished. It's been locked away in the garage out of harm's way.
Very tempted to sell it, although I doubt I'd get what I put into it.
