Nice looking Marin, great colour and nice work so far. I am restoring a 1993 Marin Eldridge Grade at the moment to its former glory and shall be following your build with interest. Marin sure built some great bikes in the early days, but I feel the reputation of the later ones seems to have tarnished the Marin brand as a whole, including these early ones which is a shame as they were great to race and ride back then.
1998 Kona 853 Explosif, 1999 NOS Kona 853 Explosif, 1999 NOS Lynskey signed Litespeed Obed Ti, 1999 Marin Mount Vision (custom), Cannondale Bad Boy 700c Disc (everyday hack) and a 1993 Marin for the Wife. Latest build in progress is a 1993 Marin Eldridge Grade with original paint.
