1989 Saracen Trekker Comp

Still a wreck but scores for transformation on the smallest humanly-possible budget (done for the challenge and practice). Deore II bits currently swapped out to test a restored Mountain LX groupset (off a £12 Emmelle).

This is my restoration... no fancy paintjob, no fancy group-upgrade or NOS stuff ... Just a lot of TLC...

another Rocky Mountain, I'm going the throw in, - 92 Equipè.

Bought the frameset some years ago from a guy who bought it originally in 92 and used the frame some years in XC racing - which showed the frame with some scratches at the paint and decals - frame itself was straight and sound with no dings. Some rust had to be removed from the BB, had some paint specially mixed to match the colour of the frame so that I can cover some chainsuck and missing paint on the rear dropout. New decals from Gil where it was neccesary, some TLC on the "paint",

That Koski has a great story! I love those good old hippie days of MTB!
