Good to see some more great looking Saracens being posted up. I love a bit of titanium and I'm hankering after an early 90's e-stay at the moment.

Hi,

just posted my '92 Kili Pro (estay) up for sale (http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewto ... ght=mombee). I've bought mine new, so it would be good if she went to a true Kili fan.

Cheers, Mombee.

I've just found myself coming home with a singlespeed Saracen Sahara Elite! Brought on impulse as seemed like a good winter fixie commuter but now I'm not so sure!!! lol damn my retro weakness :oops:

It's old has rear brake cable routed through the top tube gears routed on the downtube. Horizontal dropouts and black. Has a 300lx crank, wolber rims on exage hubs. Any idea what year? And shall I keep it? :wink:

Just realised, this is one of the biggest threads on here. That speaks volumes for the quality of what Saracen were back in the day!

Keep 'em coming!

I was just looking too. The 1992 is identical, but he said horizontal dropouts :?

Well it may sound like it and it may indeed be the same year but our bikes are worlds apart!

Took it for a ride this morning and the ss gearing is really low, not a bad bike though. Still trying to decide whether to keep it or not. I don't think its valuable enough to warrant a restoration but if I sell it I ain't gunna get back what I paid for it, winter commuter is looking likely...
