Here is my 1992 Kili Racer, one of my prized posessions :D . Not had it long, purchased off e-bay in my boredom whilst recovering in hospital. One of the best deals I will probably get, I recieved it in used but fairly original spec, the Canti's, Brake & Gear and cables were seized beyond worthwile repair and were the originals too.

Thanks to Old School Pete for the V brake levers which I bought on Saturday at the Bristol bike Jumble. Gravy monster has just fitted the V brakes and replaced all inner and outer cables with new ones and its ready to go.

That's in lovely condition, really liking that. Always had a soft spot for Saracens, esp. the one's with Maguras fitted as standard. :)

What V-brakes are they exactly?

I love these old elevated saracens. One of my regrets over the years, not getting one of these. Looks great :D
