As above. It will be a prior year model rebadged as a limited edition. Usually lower end. Decent serviceable bike but of little value. Seem to pop up quite a lot.

Lovely bike looks almost new, i'll definitely be interested in buying it for my 88 Saracen collection i'm building up.

Not much - I know Saracen made a lot of non-regular model bikes.

There was one of these for sale in the North East recently.


Hi Heavy, just interested in how old it is and what frame was used...been having a lil look around and can see similarities with Tufftrax, eiger and Traverse.
heres some photos to show what i mean...(mines the last photo)

The yellow one is 88 - a few years older than yours, which is more like my 94? Tufftrax, and a Gmax special edition that I had.

Afternoon all

New to Retrobike and after some more information about a Saracen bike I have owned since the 80s. It has been my bike, my Dad's bike and now mine again. It's a survivor rather than a show queen but I am finally getting around to a spruce up and would like to know more about it. Can anyone help?

Link here to my original post.

viewtopic.php?f=1&t=414209

Cheers


|Dont be shy! Super early Dave Yates built Saracen alert!

So, the thread is 'Early Saracen Lovers Anon'

And an early prototype is posted, hand built by a prominent frame builder and you all dribble over a custard yellow mass produced nylon monkey metal clad boat anchor??

You lot are fickle!!!

<looks for a cat to glare at, finds cat, cat claws at bare leg, blood everywhere, trip to A&E, stitches, smirks from nurse behind facemask, shouldnt have worn Spiderman pants to hospital>
