Great find Chaser and what a lovely frame, those welds are stunning and for that price too, it's a steal.
Like what your doing with the spec too, think the pace forks, silver post and stem and the hints of blue will set it apart. What colour will Gil's decals be?
Will watch this build with interest, please keep us upto date with the smallest of details.
I will really have to work at this thread.. you really set the standard for informative and entertaining threads/builds
Thanks for your comments... The decals will be silver but if you have any suggestion pls tell me, I would be more than willing to get some more printed if you have a great idea for a different colour scheme - no neon yellow though eh?
Yes, I hope to attend the twizzler [answer to question on different thread, sorry] maybe the Sara' will be finished by then?
I am trying to build the bike with a 'what would a 97 Saracen Protrax look like if it was sold today'? [with a retro forgotten futurist point of view]
I just hope the blue anno with Purple frame do not end up looking more 'No Chance' than 'Fat Chance' if you know what I mean?
Will add updates as they come along.
