Here is my recently aquired Marin Palisades Trail - research suggests 1993 vintage all working ok apart from stuck seatpost. All bits look original except suspect riser bars?

Not sure whether to restore or go SS with some discs/wider bars

risers are not original but if tey work for you then why not..personally i would use flats but with a higher stem

as to the seat post give it a few days of soaking with plus gas and all should be okay..if not use search and you will see a shedload of stuck seatpost threads

Nice bike! I've got a 1992 Palisades Trail in the black and fluoro green colourway. These early 1990s Marins are all good lookers in my opinion.

Personally, I'd strip, clean, re-grease/service and rebuild what's there first. Once you've spent some quality time with her, you'll have a better idea of future direction.

Regards
