Re: Marin Team Titanium 1990

And ready for a colour change - I know the pewter ones are quite rare but I dont like the look of them in the bike

Re: Marin Team Titanium 1990 with added IRD!

So i got some new forks but they came with a 1 1/8th steerer and of course this needs a 1 inch so off they went to Dan Chambers who changed them out, machined a collar and brazed everything together!

Some lovely machining on the inside too!

now just the following to replace

Headset
Stem - new one on the way as I just didnt like the look of the rise
Hubs - hopefully back from acorn soon
Wheel rebuild with some early Campag rims
Tyres
