Like I said in the thread for my blue 'Saracen'
, the thought just occured to me that I could make it into the 'Saracen' that never was...
...and it just developed from there; perhaps if someone at
Saracen had thought of the same idea they may not have foisted such a lamentable plethora of BSO's on an unsuspecting Public for so long!
Saracen also marketed several models based on the same frame design so when this one turned up I thought 'Why not? Let's do the same...'
I'd also much rather customise
a bike rather than just follow the herd and trot out another XTR-equipped clone or catalog resto; hence green flouro' mudguards and a 160mm stem on my cro-mega (the mudguards are actually an homage
to my lowly Falcon from BiTD...), Mozo Pro forks on more than one of my bikes when most consider them beneath contempt, an external BB on my spuriously
(to some) '97 Explosif, now complete with disks and gold bling (!), and you should see
how SWMBO's Stumphopper has turned out!
no, that should be
cos it's a little bit bright!
I shall do a photo' shoot for this one later next month when Karl comes down for the day and we go out for a scoot down to the coast in search of a suitable location...
...and thanks for the 'bump' BTW
