A few more parts have arrived today:

Image
122.5 x 73mm UN54 Bottom Bracket - a UN74 would've been nice but...

Image
Ritchey Logic Headset

Image
A nice simple and understated seat bolt

Image
ODI Tomac Attack Grips - I may use OnZa Porcipaws instead though as they would also be period correct

More coming soon...

Looking good Paul. I must say this model Traverse is one of my all time favourite Saracens and I had been keeping my eye out for one. Look forward to seeing this at OWMTBC.

Should be good when you finish the build liking the colour.

The dropouts look interesting esp the form inside the rear non mech side shown on the pic above the tubing decal

The frame is identical in detail to my '92 Tufftrax, same ovalised tubes, dropouts and cable routes except it's made from Tange DB tubing rather than the much sexier sounding Tru Temper AVR

Wouldn't mind some close up shots of the decals when you have time, as I need a white set for mine. No hurry. May even take my own at the OWMTBC :P

You should have an absolutely stunning Saracen in the making with these pristine parts, where do you get them from ?

If you're referring to my parts hoarding, it's just the tip of the iceberg.
These are some of the good bits which have been waiting for the right frame; the rest is mostly rusty old crap though.
