My first mountain bike was a Saracen 'special edition' (whatever that meant). Bought new in 1992/3 for about £350 It was nowt flash but I loved it. Got no pics but it is in the father in laws garage as I gave it to him a few years back. Hoping sometime he might get sick of it and I'll nab it back to tidy up.
I have a "special Edition", it seemed to be a parts bin raid, but I loved it! Mine is sitting at my Mum's house slowly rusting. I really need to sort it out! I have some pics that I will put up tomorrow, it's a sad sight!
Here is my Special Edition - As mentioned it is in need of some serious love! Before anyone mentions the saddle, my Mum has been riding it for the last few years and she is 61, so allowed a comfy saddle!
The bike is otherwise exactly as it was when I strayed from the singletrack back in the mid 90's, (only rustier).
Really I need to resore the bike, but I fear the task might be too large for someone with my limited time.
a bit light on retro rides right now!
