hi, heres my 'Californian' 1992 , tange steel Marin bear valley

i tried selling this on the forums a little while back but felt like a challenge so decided to keep it. i know its not exactly pretty :( but its a start and and its gradually getting there.

it has minor surface rust literally everywhere, and the cranks are seized so tight, that the bb will need to be hacked off on both ends so that i can remove them

it'll be a long process but i will be trying to make it look half decent again 8)


all comments, suggestions and criticism :lol: welcome

sean.s :)

rust is quite an issue, but its all surface and can all be sanded away with the paint :) and it all seems structurely sound too :)

the seat binder, bar and stem were sold 8)
