I picked up a Mystery Saracen frame off ebay for 99p! Advertised as a Saracen Magura, as it had a magura sticker on it :roll: . Worth a punt for 99p and it was just down the road from me.

After a bit of detective work from the good folks on here, turns out it's most likely a 1991 Sahara ... http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=181672

Here it is built up with bits from the spares box, nothing special, forks from a Raleigh, bars, Altus brakes, Altus shifters from a GT outpost I used to have. STX rear mech, front mech just as a chain guide until I find a bottom pull one. Non-matching Acera cranks, Campy St Heno rear wheel and Alex something front.

I know black and white is a bit passe but I'm quite please with it, the soft focus effect is un-intentional by the way, just crappy phone camera!!..........

Now that is what I call a 8) bike on a meagre budget!
