Need some info on these vintage Marinonis - GREAT FIND!!

Greetings fellow vintage-steel-bike enthusiasts,

I picked up two Marinonis for a really great price today and I'm looking forward to restore them. I know I should have given them a good clean up before posting pics, but I was too excited to show them to you. No serial numbers to be found, so I need your precious knowledge in order to determine the year, original parts, quality, etc. Please help me out by sharing your impressions.

Hey randyjawa! Happy you replied. I had already checked your post on your website and thought you made an awesome build out of your Marinoni Quebec. Still no idea on the year?

I'm still wondering if I should restore it or sell the parts and keep the frame. The bike is a tiny little bit too small for me, but so beautiful!

"Wish that I still had mine..."

Easy to remedy that situation - stop selling!

Nice find. I'm a fan of those bars. Let me know if you do decide to part them out.

I would make every effort to make one if not both of these fit. If they are close and you can muster the effort, I believe it would be worth it, these are fabulous in all respects. So cool.

I think I'll wait till I make up my mind before throwing prices around. I paid a good amount, but still got a crazy bargain. What made the difference is that I offered more than what the seller was asking, and so he agreed to save them for me. I was lucky to see his ad on the local classifieds just a couple of hours after he posted it. It also helped that I made an offer for everything he was selling, which included a really sexy golden Alan competition frame. The seller inherited the bikes from a friend who passed away and didn't really know what he was selling.

I'll give that effort everything I got! Funny thing is that now you're making me have second thoughts about giving the Alan frame to my friend! All three frames are about the same size.

I want a fine old bicycle in this color so, so badly! Smiles for miles!

@mushroom,
Hope you get some info on these, and can possibly make them fit. Very nice finds.
