Re:

Very, very good! :cool:

I'm on the look out for a 89 Pine Mountain to do something similar so if I ever find one I may need to pick your brains about the colour. ;)

Beautiful restoration.

My first mountain bike was a 1990 Marin Muirwoods. It's no exaggeration to say that it changed my life... I've always regretted selling it (tho' the sale part-funded a Dyna-Tech back in '92), and I was super happy to find another one a couple of years back. I could never tire of looking at those M A R I N downtubes. :)
