Not the best but like the bike really



Don't bin it! I'm sure someone on this site will take it off your hands - how much do you want for it?

Here is my 87 Saracen Trekker given to me by a friend about 5 years ago it was totally original 18 speed itm bars, front and rear u brakes, rear mech hanger and the Farmer Johns tyres.

I am slowly getting it back to a rideable state though the back wheel maybe a bit terminal.


Your bike looks great to me - I just bought a 1987 Tufftrax and that handles great and has stood the test of time. Was considering new bike but when I saw the Saracen at such a low price I had to have it! Besides, I prefer quality steel frames and they're a rarity these days.

If you are serious about selling and not too far away I may be interested as a restoration project. Where do you live?

Just picked this uptoday '91 Traverse Hydrotech Competition. It's been well looked after. I've now removed the mudguards and barends and it looks much better.

Frame number: 1040770 is as best as i can read it. Only top part of the numbers have been stamped.
