Hi,
Here is my "mystery saracen" frame. I am trying to turn it into a tourer. However I still have to get a decent fork, and a decent rear rack (Tubus?Thorn?) that allow more heel clearance.

Right then, I've stripped down my recent eBay purchase (many not very careful owners).

Image

The BB is defeating me at the moment, but nothing a big vice at work wont help shift.

The majority of the frame looks sound, but the non-drive side seat stay will need looked and one of the cable guides on the top tube is a bit mashed(see below).

Can anyone tell me more about the original spec of the Kili Pro? Most of the stuff I stripped of this is doesn't look original.

Any can anyone recommend a frame builder/resprayer in the west midlands?

All my own work as well thanks to a tin of Nitromors paint remover and 3 cans of leyland mid blue aerosol :wink: decals are going to be black to continue a theme as Saracen did do black decals its not out of order and the blue was the nearest to the original blue they did the killi (flyer I think) .

That's lovely, same colour and decals as my old Traverse elite, which was a '92 model, True temper AVR tubing. If it helps, I will list what it had on it and you might have a guide for the same if not better parts;

Groupset was XT with thumbies

Headset was XT

Pedals were Victor lightweight alloy and black cage with ' Saracen'
toeclips and straps

Stem was Zoom

Seatpost was Kalloy ( in fact same one as was on my '93 tufftrax, now surplus to requirements)

Seat was a Saracen number, leather on foam

Rims were Ritchey ? Vantage pro ( US flag with vantage pro label on rim)

Tyres were Ritchey Megabite 2.1 skin wall folders with kevlar bead

Stainless steel spokes

Hubs, not sure, possibly XT

Cassette, XT silver

Chain, silver

Bars, silver Kalloy

Seat clamp, a wire uno design, which was very good

QRs, were XT

Brake levers, XT two finger

Bar grips, am sure were Saracen, but they did'nt last long.

Above listed was as it came from the bike shop, when I lost it, it was original bar a set of specialised bar ends , crud claw and panaracer smoke on the rear and smoke lite on the front. I really must find that photograph of the thing.

Oh, the frame number was EO 7..........., I got it written down somewhere
