now ready for action! the genaral idea was to keep as original as possible whilst cheering up the dark outline of this model.needs a quick trail test and tune but this will be my 2010 weapon of choice. :)

Well I think it looks great - only issue is the colour mis-match between bottle cage & bar ends. The b/ends are a lovely hue.
Really liked polished alu frames back then (Orange Elite especially) but we did wonder if alu would last more than a few years without breaking - needn't have worried!

looks like my garage floor...

not usually a fan of Marin, but this is alright - not that an 'all right' from LGF actually accounts for much, just that it means I wouldnt kick it out of my garage... :D

thanks to all,kind comments!

got a point with the cage though.ive got a purple 'thing' at the minute.i may look for a more suitable match later on. :)

orange elite rings a bell....im gonna input some pics of my E3 shortly.its more of a harsh creation for my needs rather than restoration but, should raise a few smiles. 8)
