there was a tatty Tufftrax in a similar pink paint job to that at Newton re-cycling ctre a few days ago. 400LX, large frame. They probably would ask too much for it but if you want one it might still be there.

At first i thought it may be a 90 tufftrax but reckon it could be a 89 kili flyer or some special they did? Looks very exciting 8)

Not half as special as your 853 :shock: very very very nice indeed, loving the colour 8)

The 89 Kili was same colour and was liveried up as a Kili Flyer, this is probably a way of moving on old stock by adding STI that came out in 1990. I have never seen or heard of a Special edition before, limited edition yes during several years.

I will give it some elbow grease at the weekend and get some pics up.

Does anyone reckon there was ever much of a game plan at Saracen back in those days? I like the fact that different stuff turns up all the time, probably all made on a friday afternoon after the pub lunch!
