As title.. Someone please correct me if I've got the year wrong, but basically I have a complete Saracen TuffTrax for sale, circa 1989/1990.

Tange double butted cromo, according to the stickers

20.5" c-c seat tube
23and a bit inch top tube c-c

Mountain LX and Exage groupset, inc. deore thumbies.

All original apart from the tyres, only a pair of farmer johns away from 100% period I think, even down to the scuffed saddle and grips..
Very tidy considering the age, plenty of patina marks all over but no bubbling rust or cracks.

Not sure where to pitch this, so I'll say £150 shipped in the UK, but open to sensible offers. NOW £85 posted SOLD

Perfect hack/training bike, everything works as it should.

Cheers Tony..

Yeah it's actually surprisingly nice to ride..

Price drop to £120 posted, or I'll split it out for parts.

It is a 1989 Tufftrax. I have one which is a little smaller (19") and almost as original.
I also have a 1990 Tufftrax in the same size (21") which is Magenta and a 1990 Eiger which is the same Aegean Blue as the 1989 Tufftrax.

All of which are really quite nice to ride. They have a relatively short top tube so I find the 21" seat tube size has a perfectly sized top tube. (I normally ride 18" or 19" bikes)

It'd be a shame to split this one as it is very original.

Good luck with finding a new owner Steve.

Thanks for the info there Paul. Got a feeling I remember at least one of your Saracens from a recent retroride.. 8)

Don't want to split, due to the hassle, but if I do I'd look to move the frameset on first.

£70 will buy the frame, forks, headset, stem, post, saddle, bars, grips and BB. Including postage.
