Hi everyone - I'm a newcomer to this forum. I want a new, light bike. So instead of going out and adding more hardware to the world, I decided to overhaul an old Marin I came across. Only problem is, it's missing the gear hanger plate and I'm not sure what model it is. The model name is missing - it's got a label on the rear frame tube saying Marin Custom 7000 series Alloy. It's a hard-tail with rigid forks. The forks are pretty light but I think they might be cro-moly steel. The serial number below the bottom bracket is SR6041470 The tubes are pretty thick and round - not shaped. I thought it might be an early Palisades Trail; maybe around 1996, but I'm not sure.
I wondered it your collective experience and wisdom may have a way of decoding the model from the serial number? - that way I could track down a gear hanger. If this fails, I guess I shall have to get a thick piece of alloy plate and try to make one...
Any help would be really appreciated. Phil B
