just found pictures of my first retrobike project - as near NOS as I could get with one of those ebay saracen frames:


Did you sell it :shock:
It looks mint!


It got split up - still looks good with my neighbour riding the revised version.

Lots more early Saracens keep on appearing!

There'll be a Saracen of the Month before you know it!

Now, who can help me find an early 92/3 sort of era Kili? Ideally the gold one, with the early XTR, Ritchey WCS and a smattering of purple.....

I agree!

For so many of us here, Saracens were one of the bikes that began it all for us. That's pretty much why I started this.

They were well made, they were great handling bikes, they even looked great (well, most of them!) but above all, they were one of THE original companies on the UK mountain bike scene. I'm sure that may of us went in to shops and lusted after Kilis, looked longingly at an e-stayed bike with Maguras (So very much of the time!) and then read about the Cranes riding them all over the place. Saracen was one of the greatest bike brands out there and the old ones deserve the love!
