Picked this little beauty up the other evening. Totally original apart from the rear tyre and missimg saddle. Turns out its been standing untouched for about 10 years hence the grime, cobwebs and spiders living in the break leavers!
Going to strip it and give it a good clean and degrease and then a rebuild. Might take some time as I'm mid way through another 1990 Team Marin build!

Decided to strip and clean the frame. Really surprised at how good the zolatone is under all the grime. Used a can of degreaser and GT85 in the process. A few age related marks but nothing too serious.
