Hi, i am thinking of parting with my Sahara Elite as it isnt used enough.
Before i put it in the for sale thread i just wondered if there was any interest as a full bike, otherwise it will have to be stripped.
Spec - Saracen Sahara Elite frame, standard seatpost, bontrager rims on exage hubs, Wtb saddle, Easton Ea30 bars, Zoom bar ends, Kalloy Uno stem, Ritchey Logic brake levers with black Lx cantis, Deore Dx thumbies, Xt M730 Chainset, XT front & rear mech, Panaracer smoke tyres, Club Roost bottle cages, new bottom bracket, Manitou Sport forks. If anyones intersted let me know and we could disuss a price otherwise its getting split.

hope that works.
i will be fixing it up properly soon and maybe even a clean (!) so better pics on the way.
question is, stick with the original forks or should i be treating to old beatie to some switchblades? bit academic at the moment cos the stem is siezed in.

I can honestly say I had no idea that there would be this much love for old Saracens when I started this thread. It's lovely to see I was wrong!
