not only are you the man who knows the value of every bit of retro kit every made, you are also a bit of a dab hand with the rattle cans 8) That is a great job, you have inspired me to get my dale stem sorted.

1. i'm wating for a NOS marin handlebar to arrive.
2. will give the stem ~2 weeks to dry properly.
3. the wheels are laced but not yet trued.
so i guess in about a month i should be able to present pics of the finished bike :)

afaik its the original 1994 marin handlebar. lucky me :)
put the stem in the stove for 20 minutes on 80 degrees to harden it. the paint makes a durable impression now. i might possibly finish the project this weekend.

Good news on the bars. One of the harder things to find in my opinion.
Don't wait a month to update us with a finished bike.
I enjoy the build too much.
