Back home for a couple of weeks so offering for sale again this original Saracen Kili Flyer from 1985. I am prepared to let the bike go for what it owes me, personally I think it is a bargain considering the parts you would be getting aswell.

22 1/2" frame made from 501 ATB - suit 32" to 36" inside leg.
Sugino GT Chainset
Suntour X1 derailleur
Suntour Mountech front mech
Think they are Araya 7X rims
Suntour sealed bearing hubs
Stainless spokes
Suntour Power thumbshifters
Strong seatpost
Dia Compe brakes and levers
Nitto bars and stem ( bmx style )
Suntour seatpost binder

Any questions please ask.

Looking for 135 GBP posted in mainland UK - without the saddle and pedals

Dammit.

Don't suppose you are after anything by means of a trade pX?

Was talking to Elpedro at the weekend about my next project being a mid 80s build :oops:

If that's all original components then its an 85 as the 86 came with shimano gears ( the gears are the only difference between 85 & 86 ).

Cool bike and a fantastic bike to ride ( I have an 86 in red )

Good luck with the sale

Thanks for the heads up on that, I never was sure what year it was, but swayed towards '86 because it was only released after the Cranes completed their ascent of Kilimanjaro in '85 on those early Conquests.

Thanks for letting me know the setup size. I'll join the list of folk wishing it was a size smaller (or that I was a size bigger!).
