I see a path. A winding, treacherous, rock strewn path with something vaguely familiar on the distant horizon.
Ah yes, I see it clearly now........... ruin, only ruin my boy :shock:

But bloody good fun on the way 8) 8) 8)

Anyway all of those are too flash, square, weird for one as old as me. A nice early Marin though, and I could be tempted.

Seller dropped bike off today - very nice chap.

Took a few pics before it got dark.

Condition is not too bad, everything is there and works.

Image

Zoom stem and Zoom Brahma? bars - not sure about those. Weird

Image

Sheepy stickers - quite a few?

Old sharkfin

Put to bed while I think about it. Muddy Fox and Hardrock behind. Kona, Marin and my road bike under covers. (They're shy)

Now I have a dilemma. Bought this for some better wheels for son's Hardrock. Then sell the bits and get the wheels free.
Two problems, they are 6 speed, and not in the greatest condition. He needs 7 speed.
Bigger problem, took it for a short ride, and it feels great. Too nice to strip.
Bugger bugger bugger.
