I've had this for a while and picked up bits to put it back to its original state. Took me a while to get the bars and really would prefer some better condition ones.

the chainring bolts needs cleaning up and new xtr rings as its been a commuter for a few weeks.

Still on the look out now for:

1) 1993 marin titanium saddle
2) XTR m900 rings and bolts
3) newbars and stem

whats best to clean the frames on these with - atosol

:)

lucky to have the original wheels, they had been removed and other wheels used. so they are pretty much new, team rims with purple nipples!

that's a nice looking bike. I think some of the marins are under rated. the geometery on these looks spot on. I need to get it weighed up and check but if feels light for a steel frame
