Rescued a Marin Palisades Trail from the scrap heap the other day, gonna SS it and use it as a comuter. Has been sat outside for 3 years so needs some TLC. Have stripped it back to frame, bars and brakes
Having trouble getting the main part of the bb out of the frame. Got the lock ring out after a fight but the main bb won’t budge. Covered it in wd40 inside and out and going to leave it overnight to see if that helps.
Had the seat tube ground down and fitted a non qr coller, grips, seatpost and saddle. Tyres fitted to rims (shwalbe CX Comp) so just waiting for the ss conversion and to get the bb changed over
It looks really cool, although not sure I could stay perched on your saddle! Did you measure your chainline? It looks a bit out in that last photo (although could just be an illusion). I also suspect you will find that you need a tensioner (as I did!).
