OK, I know not strictly retro, but it is a Saracen and it's "anonymous" and I love it! My 853 Kili with its new, much shorter (than the 440mm Project 2s) front end. I think it looks a lot better - but the clearance wouldn't like mud. I shall swop to road tyres and make it my dry day winter rocket!

(Grateful thanks to Raging_Bulls for the forks - even just the right colour!!)

Thank you - I am very pleased with the look. Red DX brake arms to add I think. And black rims would look better...

Yeah, I love it - there's a very real danger of it becoming my favourite bike! :lol:

I only got it because LGF had posted his, and I used to look at this frame hanging on the wall at the back of the tiny LBS in Brighton it came from.

I actually had no intention of building myself a purple bike of any make but the popularity of the brand on this thread persuaded me otherwise!

.......................................Time to get my cycling kit on I think... :D
