Nice. Am tempted to build up a marlin in the garage from bits.

Polishing looks tidy.

Mate, I'm so pleased to see this being built, it looks like an absolute cracker, the polishing is brilliant and I really like the grey of the Judy's on the frame. When it's finished we'll have to go for a ride!

I would like to but they dont seem easy to find and my budget wont stretch to a set of custom ones , i have seen a set of budget down tube ones that would probably fit the bill but the headtube and leaping marlin etc on the seatube are not so easy .
Cheers Paul
