She's slowly getting there, finding the necessary bits is becoming more and more interesting. For a 19 year old bike she's in amazing condition, much better than the Bear Valley SE I was considering working on.
Here's my first mock-up of her......
I won the saddle on eBay recently which arrived this morning, it's a 1991 NOS Selle Italia Prairie in Glow Orange, which is remarkably similar to the Neon Orange on the forks and stem.
I've attached the XTR combo levers and V-brakes (thanks to Jamiedyer) the graphite grey of these looks great with the Zolatone finish on the Marin.
I've got a Shimano 105 on rear and an Ultegra double on the front so I'm looking for a suitable crank, hence my question regarding a Stronglight in silver alloy.
I'll have a 8 speed Dura-Ace and a pair of silver Mavics next to go on (when they arrive) and with Gil providing some reproduction decals she'll be ready to roll!
Forgot to add, I'm looking for good paint match to respray the Marin Lite bar rather than leave it silver/polished.
