I like the "weathered" tyres 8) I bet this was built for less than some people spend on NOS tyres! DX upgrade means that isn't far off a Pine Mountain spec.

Only comment would be rotate the bars so they curve towards your shoulders... Well that's how I like 'em anyway.

Great work on the Palisades. I have a Muirwoods to do, it will end up very similar to yours hopefully!

Let us know how it rides, it would be interesting to find out what it's like...

That looks stunning!!! Excellent job! Hoping my Pine Mountain comes out as good...

Interested to see you put the "Race Bred" stickers on the stays, and the "Marin" stickers down the forks... I thought the 1990 models didn't have either. (At least they didn't on the Pine Mountain). :?:

:D
