bought this bike recently having owned a kili flyer in the early 90's
it certainly has the fillet brazing and the right colour but decals are odd - or they were as they were peeling and so removed them to get right ones sorted. This is going to be a rebuild and it is if correct a great frame. The bike won't be flash and will leave same colour as last one got nicked when frame colour was changed and my nephew left it outside a shop on his paper round - their would of had no idea how good the bike was.

Certainly looks like one to me. Forks could be from anything though if it's a limited edition.

Looks in great nick. Nobody did paint like saracen did.

Nice one, build it and ride, these are decent, but not quite as good as you might think

40 mile commute! Good effort!

The one I had was decent, but cAnt honestly say it was better than my uu trekker from the same time.

Not lightweights either!
