This old girl followed me home from the BDW'er and I didn't have the heart to leave her outside.

It's the same colour as my Tufftrax I had from new and think it's the same frame with a different name. Don't know what I'll do with her yet but I'm sure I'll come up with something. :wink: :D

Well it's certainly identical to my Tufftrax frame, with the ovalised seat tube at the bottom bracket, elegant canti hanger and 'lugged' bit at the top of the seat tube. Concealed brake cable in the top tube? It even looks the same size as mine, which I think is 20 1/2". Looks in good nick too- excellent find.

If you want to go fully retro with it I have a set of Exage Trail cantis and levers that I took off my 1989 one, and also a stem with canti hanger and brass roller off of my other 1990 one. And an original black anodised front wheel that I retired long ago! And the wheel reflectors and pedals!

Cheers mate, may well chase you up for some of those parts.

Yep, internal cable just like my Tufftrax and about a 20" frame. Lovely. 8)

Brocklanders, is that U brake rear and canti front?

Very nice by the way. You must be happy, you've been after some vintage Saracen action for a while.
