Hi, here is my "new" baby, a 1992 Marin Pine Mountain. I got it for 20£!
It's almost original, except the tyres, wich are now 2 Tioga Psycho and the rims, 117 SUP for the rear and Mavic 231 for the front.

I've ordered new Marin and Pine Mountain decals as it's a bit scratched.

Here is how it was yesterday and today :)

Like that alot.

Of course now you need to paint your Porsche Orange to match the front forks..

this is the only model year of Marin bikes i ever liked 8)

also, if you're interested i have a mavic 231 in good condition with plenty of wear available if you want to replace the rear rim so it's all matching, it's a 32 hole i think.

:D

Great score. 8)

Interesting to see it in the alternative 1992 paint job, instead of the orange rear triangle version.

Brilliant, just taken ownership of the same frame. Can I ask where you got decals from?

Love it not a massive fan of marin bikes only apart from the zolotone ones in the early 90s, after that they ain't lookers are they, this is sweet however.

Nice backdrop as well.... :D

I think this Pine Moutain needs to be repainted... the frame is scratched and it's a pity :cry:
I'm gonna disasemble it and fully paint the frame :D
To be continued 8)
