Lord Lummy! :shock:

I know stems can be quite long, but I've never seen one that puts your bars into a neighbouring county... :)

Just an aside really....having had far more bikes than anyone should ever bother with, some far more expensive than a bike should ever be, I'm down to four. Three of which are...Saracens. And it is thus now certain (barring a major Lotto win) that the last non-electric assisted bike I own/ride will be a Saracen, two of them probably giving up their lives to keep the last one running!

They are THAT GOOD!

I know it's just my personal preference, but a flat bar would make it perfect... 8)

You are dead on the money but my back would fail me, so risers are needed if I am to ride her in comfort.

Very nice indeed Gaz. A great example of the last of the really good Saracens.

I've got one of those Limited Editions - identical colour scheme, but no pierced top tube and it had a "normal" Saracen quill stem. Identical decals etc, but DX rear mech and DX rapidfire shifters. Changed all of it over the years, but the frame lives on!
