Hi guys new here!
This is my wildcat trail project I believe it is a 1998 model.
This started out as a £30 frame with original coil shock which I have had powder coated gloss black and fitted new bearing etc.
I managed to buy another Marin, a b-17 which I removed the xfusion air shock from and also a club roost saddle I then sold the bike on.
I have a full xt chainset from another Marin, a mount vision with a stuck bb and also some hope mono mini brakes.
Also managed to pick up a bike from a friend which had a hope headset and head doctor, Fox 32 talas forks, hope front hub xt rear with what I believe are mavic rims.
It’s nearly now ready just brake mounts and cables, grips and a bb and it’ll be done.
Any other Marin fans on here? I have a soft spot for these old full suspension ones
