Ah… 'twas you who got the technium chill was it Mr Toad????

I was having a rant about my IT department deciding to disconnect the interweb just when I needed to bit on it :lol:

Glad it went to a good home, figured it would be someone on here who got it – looked like quite a good find.

Can't quite see on the pic - is that a conquest or Kili Flyer? That looks even earlier?
The Conquest I had back in 1985 had the same riser bars + 4 bolt stem like that.
Any one know if Saracen numbered their frames in sequence or just randomly? It would be nice to get a more accurate date.

Your head tube transfer looks older as well.
