Saracen Tufftrax 1990 Pink

This was a small project due to the mint condition it was in in the first place so all i did was give it a full strip/re grease and a good polish.

Its completely original including grips and tyres and the only thing missing is the frame reflectors!!!

Enjoy Saracen lovers.

Looks like it just rolled out of the shop :shock:

Front straddle cable could do with lowering but it's probably been like that since new? It's too clean to ride anyway!

Cheers,Im thinking about turning it into a tour bike so rack front and rear and putting on some thumb shifters as i quite fancy maybe doing the north French coast and doing the normandy landing sites.
I might even try and call it a riding stag do :lol:

Love it! That is an absolute minter.

Good to see some great photos of it too. The ones in the 1990 catalogue just don't do it any justice at all.

Thanks mate.

I just wish it was blue that's all as i really loved that colour.Having said that I love the 90s pink anyway and these powder coat frames as their pretty bomb proof.

Found it at a local shop in Taunton and they wanted crazy money for it and just offered a lower figure and they accepted it.

Theres no build thread as i didnt take any photos before, as i said it was mint to start with and just re greased and polished it. :lol:
