Well it's not an Alu Team but a Alu Pro circa 91, It's been retired due to a cracked headtube but I've still got it and owned it from new , it may not be eligable as it's not rideable anymore (some bits have been removed) so I won't get upset if it's pulled but it's the top end of the MF range and was used until recently (the crack was getting bigger !.

Apologies in advance for crappy pics, but its dark outside...

Another old Saracen,

xxnicks 1985 Saracen City Bike, now converted to a 15 speed, essentially the same as a Conquest just like Stanny's...indeed this was his once.

Hope you like the 2nd picture, put a bit of effort in for that.

Also this is a no Shimano build! Got to be worth an extra vote
