The Early Saracen Lovers Anons thread is obviously inflating prices. I wonder if there will be a Saracen price crash after this month's BOTM is forgotten?

Look what I just made :)
Well, it's been lurking in the garage for the best part of 20 years, occasionaly resurected and then take to bits again.
Now, I guess it'll need a clean, the period correct rear mech rebuilt and the original XT rear wheel plus DX spuds reclaimed.
I don't think I'll put the STi units, correct canti pads or rubbers on though. And the XT crank melted in a car crash. Alas I binned the Saracen stem and oversize bar. I may well go with some X-Lite risers as the Profile bars are silly narrow :shock:

Does anyone know what year my bike is? It's a Tufftrax I bought used in 1990 from H.O. Smiths of Doncaster for £300. Everything major is as I bought it. Still got the original Biopace chainset. Only changed grips for some with gel inserts and added bar ends. It is a lemon yellow. I managed to get 1 bottle cage the correct colour when I bought the bike. A couple of years later had to get just a plain yellow 2nd cage. I was thinking of trying to get suspension forks but as it is more or less all original I've decided to keep it that way.

Its either a '88 or 89' My brother had one identcial but in 24" wheel version. It was a great bike that he out grew, It had Shimano Exage trail groupset and Specialized crossroad tyres iirc 8)

Keep it original, Suspension forks will ruin it :wink:
