Not heard of a Saracen Blizzard, not from early to mid nineties at least, so perhaps later, or I am talking crap.

While we are on the subject of random Saracens, has anyone heard of a Forcetrax? Looks like a mid-nineties effort but never heard of one before, not sure where it fitted into the grand scheme of things?? Any ideas?

No idea where forcetrax fitted in but your right think it'll be about a 1995. Nice colour, should be tange double butted frame as well?

Is this one you've snagged yourself?

Yea it's mine. I was really after the wheels/tyres that came with it on flea bay for £11.

But might build it up now, the paint looks like it was really nice in 1995 but it's all peeling off in rather a strange way now (almost like a wrap), so it's a start again job.

Yeah looks a great colour. Must be of good vintage with the noodle for rear canti.

Build it up. Looks just what you were after.

Just a couple of photos of the old girl in her former glory - alas the same can't be said about me! This one's on the top of Snowden after a long gruelling ride up the toursit track - the next one is on the first major trip out - on the Pennine Way. You'll notice my friend's Overbury Pioneer.

Well, after posting that I wanted a mid nineties Saracen a few weeks ago. I now have three!! that's on top of the Marin SS project and the modern felt I'm running ...I only wanted one ha ha. The best is a mint Tufftrax, it's like new and a lovely purple colour....it did cost a bit though. :oops:

So no-one's heard of a forcetrax? neither had I!
