the welding on that frame is classy too shame the modern Saracens are not of that standard.


I have a 2007 Saracen Zen welding on that is superb. Dont tar the Madison takeover saracens of 2006+ with the Halfords awfulness :lol:

Back to this beauty - graphics and paint look 100% spot on. This is going to be one nice finished build.

Excellent work with your choice of powder-coat. Looks great with the green decals.

Looking forward to seeing this one built up.

Thanks for the nice comments folks.

I have hit a bit of a brick wall in terms of finishing this build as soon as I thought. Basically I didn't have the front mech I thought I had, overlooking the fact it is bottom pull therefore leaving me with 2 options. Source a top pull mech or try to find one of those pully disc things that would allow me to route the cable bellow the mech..

I await the pedals and some green ano bolts. I have also decided to listen to Magas and source some of the older M739 Brake levers. I also want to change the brake pad holders from black to silver.. shorten steerer.. The list goes on :lol:

Here are some pics in poor light outside my house today.

Work in progress
