As a kid I always thought the original Saracen suspension forks looked ace! Do you still have them?

Crud, that's a 1993 Sahara Elite -- even at 17 years old, I still think that they're fine looking bikes, especially after the wash you've given it. ;)

Kudos to LGF for saving it from the crusher.

I think the only original part left on Crud's bike is the seatclamp...

I've owned my '93 Sahara from new, and mine didn't come with a seat clamp. :( If the headset is a Tioga Avenger, then that's probably original.
