Eventually I found the time to strip down this bike and make some plans.

I sorted the decals and plan to put some nice kit on this without breaking the bank. I love how these ride so want to make this into my main steel ride.

One of the nicest steel frames ever built, would love one myself, but alas they never catered for the vertically challenged society that I belong to :wink:

yes - one orange and one orangey-red. Loved them but ultimately too small for me (even in 21" flavour :shock: )

Yes it is the one that used to be my avatar and as far as i know it is the original powder coat. The saracen max drive straight forks are certainly hard to come by and luckily i have two sets for keeps :wink:
