Just found this forum, and I am staggered to think my Saracen Limited Edition is retro - but I guess it is knocking on now. Much like myself. It's black with green Limited Edition stickers, not sure what age exactly but probably early to mid 90's.
I was just trying to find out what the wheel is (without having to trudge down to the bike shed through the snow!) and came across this site. I need a new wheel because the freewheel has failed on mine, and would like to use an original part if possible.
If anyone knows where I can get spares for this bike I'd appreciate any pointers.
OK, dragged it out for a photo shoot, light is going so apologies for quality.
From trawling this thread I'm reckoning a 91 or 92 Limited Edition, possibly based on a Safari. It's on all original parts, including the original Ritchie MegaBite gumwall tyres, which look fit to burst. It's been used as a workhorse, on it's last real outing in Cornwall it towed a trailer with our Tibetan Terrier in.
Sorry no one got back to you on this. Most likely a 92 and possibly based on a 91 tufftrax frame. There are a few of these around and they are very nice. Best place for parts is either here (parts wanted thread) or e bay. Also many good bike shop (not halfords etc) will be able to fit a new freewheel to your existing hubs, 7 speed stuff is still available.
Keep the biek running it will last for years, some new tyres would be good, again cream walled ones are available now and then on ebay if you want to keep it original, and the best thing you can do for an old bike is give it new gear/brake cables that will make a huge difference.
