Did the later Saracen catalogues up to 2007 ever get scanned? Those years are now also retro I assume with a few more years passed.

They'll never be retro, just old bikes ;-)

1992 style graphics on what looks like a 1991 Trekker Hydrotech frameset. Different colour obviously; it looks like the same metallic grey powdercoat used on the 1992 TuffTrax Elite.
Probably a 'Special Edition' or 'Limited Edition' bike built up using last years surplus framesets and distributed through dealers as non-catalogue exclusives during 1992.

I had one exactly the same and came to the conclusion above. 91 Trekker Hydrotech frame sold in 92 with a fresh coat of paint.
