Does any one know how much the head tube badges are?

Here's my half dressed Tufftrax. I think I want to ride it on the Malham meet so am doing a parts bin build with what I've got kicking about. Memories of my first mtb are flooding back with this one. 8)

Well....Rufftrax (previous page) stripped and cleaned - no nasties, nothing seized, most parts v little wear. Found a seat post to fit, big tyres, swopped one set of cantis for better. Rides nice - but shan't be keeping it as is. Not sure whether to use it as a source of spares (24 speed the winter single speed for spring?) or sell.

Even the cheap ones were well made bikes I reckon!

could you do me a small favour? Could you take a pic of the frame tubing decal?

Ta.

*edit - I think I have the bung for your stem too.

Done! (while still some light). I'll post it up later today (remind me if I don't - it's an age & memory thing!).

This any good? Difficult to get a clear shot as decal is well down between seat and down tubes. I'll write out each line if you need it.

That Traverse is exactly what I picture in my mind when I hear the name 'Saracen'

Love the fork, like the way the top tube pierces the seat tube, love the... magenta.... It's a beauty.

Already posted on the forum somewhere, Im new here but i have a passion for the old Saracen designs!! This is my 89 Tufftrax,needs alot of new parts if its gonna be made back to factory spec,but it is rideable for now,Has the original sacracen seat but is missing some of the foam hence why its got the pretty big retro Gel Tech slip on seat cover!! Think this is a 19 inch frame.Has deore lx gears,i think the crank is a biopace 400lx one,has dia compe 986 cantis controlled by dx levers and gripshift.As for the wheels....ive no idea,I think the hubs are dia-compe but not sure,I will drag it out and do a full report once the weather cheers up. i also owned a 16inch frame but this was stripped after it got stolen and given back to me by the police minus everything,and the frame had been bent :-( I will get some much better pics up once i can get it out of the shed. Ive searched the forums but have not yet found anyone or pics of the same bike in this colour!! are there any?.

Oh Man, that was my first bike, the pink tufftrax. Seen plenty of the blue ones, but not the pink. 400LX was correct, but mine had those early sti shifters. Also original wheels had black rims. Can't remember detail though.
