my Father has a 1992 Saracen Tufftrax Elite which I've told him it has been 'stolen'.
It's his baby, he's had it since brand new (I can only just remember going with him to get it). When I was a lad I trashed this bike and he was pretty upset about it. I have fond memories of this bike riding around our local canal paths with my dad, some of the best days of my life. If someone genuinely offered me £10k for this bike, I wouldn't take it. (....call it 11 and we've got a deal).
I remember him having a stash of cash that he'd been saving for a few years to get this thing.
I've stripped it down and stashed it in the loft, cleaning part by part without him seeing.
I will post pictures of it before I stripped it but I really really need some help on this. I'm on a very small budget but i'll do anything to get this bike back to original spec.
The handlebars are bent, saddle is ripped, pedals are shot and grips are worn. It also has no tyres.
If anybody has any parts or knows of any that I can get my hands on to rebuild this bike for my dad, I'd be really grateful. Here's how it should look:
