Hey Folks,

Nothing special but I like it :wink:

1997 Saracen Kili (853 I'm told, so thats how its badged :wink: )

Bought off of ebay cheap and NOS - built up as a rigid hack with a mixture of parts. Slicks are just for the L2B

Very light, whippy - Love her.

When properly dressed she wears Onza Porc tyres :D

Hope you like - full spec to follow - comments appreciated :D :D
