    having a hard time figuring out year of my Marin frame

    My Marin frame was a Team frame that was painted a neon yellow fading into neon purple. the fade was in small triangles. At one point in the past i thought i found a picture but I cannot seem to find it. I am wanting to have it repainted is my reason for the search. thanks

    There's some serial # info on this thread:

    View topic - Help with Marin frame numbers please! | Retrobike

    It might not be complete but I can confirm that the third number is for the production year ... on a 90's Marin bike. Can you find the serial # stamped on the bottom side of the bottom bracket?

    I found the pic on a thread on retrobike which chronicled a Marin Eldridge project. Can't find it now but, yeah, there's not a lot of documentation on some of those bikes.

    Here's another. Add "neon" to your search terms, maybe.
