Bit of an unintentional project this one.

I've been given this 1993 Marin Bobcat frame and forks.

I was advised that it had some issues:

Bottom bracket cup seized into the frame; check

Seatpost seized; check

Stem seized into the fork steerer; check

Going to be a fun one this.

Time to bring out the man tools.

In regard to the build on this I do have a plan in mind, depends if I can the issues sorted first.

cheers
Chris

That there'll be a '93 :wink:

I had the same issues with a '94 Pine Mtn but had good fun with some Plusgas and a vice :)
