Picked this up last night, if I didn’t know any better I’d swear it was Italian.

I remember them to be great values for how much they cost back in late 90's.
Even the frames were very nicely done steel frame, chrome stays and paint job like Colnago.

Indeed, they are Italian. Marin had these frames built by Billato Brothers, purveyors of all sorts of boutique frames sold under many names.

i had a San Marino like that, a bunch of years back. Be careful with those “flying buttress” shift cable stops, one broke off and I had to have it welded back on, ruining the paint.

I had the Vicenzo model, same frame, same paint scheme, but with curved fork, quill stem & Veloce Ergo9. Found the shaped tubing to be stiff. Nice bike, but for me not a keeper. Sold it to fund my 1st full carbon bike.

Sorry no pic.
