I only found this thread (and brilliant site) about a week ago and imediately felt compelled to buy a 1992 (I reckon) black Saracen Limited Edition off ebay which I think is Sahara with a mix of random components (altus crank :? ). Should be here on by the weekend can't wait to relive my mispent youth, which was mainly cycling around local quarries on my Sahara!

My limited edition arrived and it is in really good nick, fitted a period exage LT crank (needed removable chainrings), new chain and grips. The bike has gumwall Ritchey megabites which are currently inflated but look ready to pop though old age, may need to carry a foldable spare tyre.

I want to replicate the decals while they still look good, anyone know what fonts Saracen used around 1992 - 1994, especially for the main Saracen text logo?

try Gil M on here, search for him... he did a great job on some 1997 Saracen decals for me and his work adorns many restorations of other lovely RBers bikes...

also random NOS stem find for Saracen restorers (too modern for your I know):
