I'm quite a fan of the original Saracen bikes up to 2007 approx before they changed hands and became a different company.

I've got a few Saracen bikes but because I've bought s/hand I've never actually got a manual. Just wondered if anyone has a scan of such a manual?

Yes I've downloaded most of those catalogues but was after a copy of their instruction manual or owners manual assuming they were supplied with one.

Ah, right. Can't remember getting any with my Tufftrax back in 1990 tbh.

I think it is a legal requirement now to include a manual but not so sure back then but was still an industry norm. I think I still have the manual somewhere in the loft for past Raleigh bikes. It may have simply been a pamphlet stating warranty information or they could have just included the instruction sheets for the Shimano components. Nowadays I think its part of the certification process so to not include a manual would mean the bike wasn't certified correctly. You are meant to state intended use and weight limits plus other safety information.
