Gil does not have any pre 92 Saracen artwork, However I am working on this with a local grahpics company who currently have my 91 Trekker and 89 Trekker with them , they can rework from pictures and are pretty good. I am having some made for my current 88 Trekker project.

linky to their site 8) http://www.graphicshackuk.com/ mention me and the RB site & I'm sure they will be happy to help.

Do you have decals/stickers sorted out? I'm in the market for some, and I think Brocklanders is too, so maybe we should club together to get a professional Gil_m set of artworks.


Yep, would be interested if any one reproduced either '89 or '91 decals. Will need both in the future.

I suppose it depends what you want to achieve. Did I read somewhere that you were going to change the crank? If so this I think would change my opinion below.

At the moment I love the frame and it's classic style of paint job, the older kit you have on it now doesn't look too out of place. Kind of lends itself to the simple outline Saracen decals of 92 and like easy rider says "Ritchey". I think the large 92 saracen decal on the downtube with just a white outline would look ace against the blue and like wise any decals on top of the white should be colour matched with the blue of the frame..
