Got a 1993 Saracen catalogue if anyone wants scans.


'93/'94 is where it's at for me. I'm currently building up (very, very slowly!) a 1993 Saracen Kili XTR Elite. Gorgeous frameset in Tange Ultimate Utrastrong. I had a '94 version (practically identical, save for the CNC alloy brace on the R35s) way back when and this is the closest I could get to finding another. 8)

This is one of those Projects on the back boiler... built this up earlier this year (yea I know its not period correct :roll: ) but I intend to get the frame resprayed and refinished early part of next year and built up with more period correct components :) I think is around 1989 . front and rear 'u' brakes which will be interesting :lol:

I can't match Heathy's for originality but my Kili is almost done. I'm waiting for CRC to deliver some Ergon grips and it will be complete. Here is the frame and (non-original) forks. Compare with the one above. Do you think I should add the stickers as per the original or leave it as it is?
