So, Saracenistas...

What about this, then?

I know next to nothing about it. Am sure someone here will....

Think it has been shown elsewhere on here before. It is a concept bike isn't it?

I'm not really sure what to make of it Carlos the Slackal.

Before I say anymore perhaps I should ask if it belongs to you?

:lol:

My Saracens - 3 Conquests and a Tufftrax. One of my first posts so not sure if I've done this right!

Wow, lovely collection there.
Three Conquests. I think that's probably doubled the number that I've ever seen here on Retrobike.
It'd great to see some more photos and find out why you have so many of those early classics...?

Thanks. Yes I'll get some more photos.

My dad and my uncle used to own Saracen cycles from feb 1985 until about three years ago so I have fond memories of the early bikes, particularly the conquest. I'm still on the look out for an 1988 matt black conquest but haven't come across one yet.

Kaya - yes I found one like yours but in poor nick and the frame was more pink than red, so it's being resprayed at the moment, I've gone for black with red decals like the original 501 that the cranes took up Kilimanjaro.

I've also got an '88 Kili flyer that I bought off eBay a few weeks ago, I'll get some photos up of it
