Wow! a Killi flyer I never thought I'd see one of these again.

I had one of these as my first good bike (bought from Bike in Bristol).

Fillet braised Tange Prestige frame with a black shimano Deore group set throughout and black own brand stem/bars and seat post (the only silver parts on that bike were the spokes!).

Thanks for posting that up, you made my day!

SUperb job, only just read you painted it yourself , top work with the colour too, pink seems to be so hit and miss and miss in a big way. This is another saracen that seems to be changing my mind over the brand, was only really exposed to the piles of crap.

God I wanted this bike in March '88 when I bought my same model year Trekker in aquarius blue.

Think this was a 1988 bike as they appeared in late 1987/ early 1988. And the 1989 range was advertised at Evans with the Trekker being pea green and the u brake being mounted on the seat stays...

anyway...lovely lovely bike.

Heathy's got one too. NOS pretty much like yours.

Quite jealous of you both.

The bike has already been used for the Cannock ride and I was very pleased.
James Bond moment: This bike will return as a long distance tourer.
