Cheers for all the great comments, I always remember the Zolatone Marin's from my LBS as a kid. Really pleased to find this great example.

Mick D, no this one didn't come with a spare frame.

Inigo Montoya, I'll try and remember to post the frame number up over the next few days.

Just saw an old Marin here... used as a commuter by a student, standing alone in the rain... Lovely grey and green...

But yours is also beautifull 8) Grey and orange and looks like it's never been ridden :shock:

Beautiful. First mountain bike I rode that had under bar shifters as opposed to thumbies...had a go on my mate's round the car park and I was blown away. My Ridgeback 602 suddenly seemed crap!

Nice find!
