I also had the black Sahara Elite with the pink decals.

Based on Chris's picture of the red 1993 Sahara Elite, the black one is likely a year or 2 older - So around 1992?

The red 1993 has a suspension fork (innovation!) and a couple of frame details that trickled down from the Kilis, like cabling along the side of the toptube and the pierced seat-cluster.

I can't remember when I bought the black one, but it served me well for years of MTBing, commuting and tours in Ireland and Malta.

It got totally stripped of parts when parked in the street. Twice! :twisted:
Including Salsa, Pauls and other nice kit.

The second time it happened, I retired it and used the insurance payment to fund my first Kona.

I got this from those nice people at saracen when my origonal kili flyer developed a cracked drop out. I had to pay a balance for the upgrade (about 300 pounds). I was very happy with the arrangement. Specially as they also let me keep my old flyer that i had repaired.

Anyone know how many they made? must admit I've never seen another one of this vintage with the wishbone seat stay. The stickers became scruffy so they have been removed. Saracen can't supply new ones, but I mustn't complain.

the tubing is AL2/2.5v.

Is it a re-badged frame from another manufacturer or or a unique saracen product.

There's no frame number, does anyone have any idea on the numbers made?

Wow :shock: how cool is that , its an early one, I would say that it has to be between 85 to 88 at a guess. Looks very MK1 Raleigh Maverick ish if you know what I mean :lol:

Have you just aquired this ? ? as it looks if it needs some toady lovin :wink:

Its a beauty and would love to see it built up and restored.

What a bargain, looks like Early Deore deerhead groupo. I would love to come to that but cant make it. Maybe as there is some ashton court interest we could meet on our Saracens when the weather is better 8)

Have a good Christmas matey and hope to catch up soon

I've just recently got hold of this. Can anyone tell me what year it is? I think that it's a '95 or later as it hasn't got the cable stops for cantis - just V's. Also does anyone know what's with the weld near the top of the seat tube? Has it been repaired or did they make them like this?
