Just started....

Picked up the frame, forks, bar, stem and headset from a member off of here - robdem - cheers, rob.

So to start with here we have a 1991 Marin Muirwoods and as I'm sure you'll all agree in fantastic condition. There is the odd rub marks and grime in the welded parts as expected however these do come off quite easily.

I should mention at this point that my weapon of cleaning is Elixair's SkyWipes.

Absolutely fantastic product. I've not used any of the other products but judging from just using the SkyWipes I'm sure they would be just as good.

Frame, forks and stem fitted together with a Shimano XTR headset.

Now for some pics.... :D

Ah yes the confusion of Marin frame numbers...It's in 1991 catalogue but the frame serial number is as follows:

M60IA1000

So if I'm right, that would make it

M - Marvel
6 - Muirwoods
0 - 1990?

Please correct me if I'm wrong.

I am pretty sure the fatter 'afterburner' stays only came 91 onwards (that's not to say your frame wasnt made in 90 for the 91 launch).

I think 'rockstar' only came in 91 onwards to.

Other than that its a bit tricky to date as it doesnt have the UK 'mundane' paint scheme :D
