I used to sell Saracen's in 1995 at Wheelbase in the Lake District. We also hired them out up at Grizedale. Seem to remember the paint job was covered in this sort of plastic overcoat that pealed if scratched...

Or am I in denial?

Think I have an early Saracen fetish.

Had a Saracen Conquest Elite with Tange switchblade forks & was my first serious mtb.
Very striking design with it's e-stays and box section down tube.
Alas I sold it to buy my first car :oops:
