Ah, forgot all about this.

I've edited my link above. Looks just like Rupe's 1988 tufftrax, which has canti front.

viewtopic.php?t=195697

Paint looks original (still don't have it in my possession to look better...) so maybe it was a special/limited edition leftover. Or Muppetman could well be right.

It's an 88-89 limited edition. Its the original finish. Essentially a rebadged 1988 tufftrax in black. Another one of Saracens end of season jobs.
So totally class then! Ha :)
(I'm a bit biased)

I think you have an 88 limited edition ;)

BITD a mate had one , had Exage mountain with SIS LH shifter ,the chainset should be biopace SIS which only this groupset had I think , steel rings I have some in my spares I think. It was a good spec bike back then had wolber rims and tyres too

EDIT : SS you just beat me to it :lol:

Hi, yes. Had one for a bit and wish I had kept it now. (As always)
Still got the saddle if you want it free for your build.

That'd be just grand. Would put pressure on me to finish/keep it!

You don't happen to have any other spare Saracen saddles do you Steve...?

I'd not seen that photo or that bike before James.
Where's it from...?
