Inspired by this thing of beauty!

http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=38566



Anyone else have a love for the lovely things that Saracen churned out before they became a bit, well, dross?

When they made the lovely Kilis, the even earlier Conquests, the E-stays and Magura braked ones?


I'll admit it.

My name is Carlos and I love early Saracens.



Now, has anyone got a pic of a 95 Kili Flyer? The gold one with the early XTR and all manner of Ritchey loveliness? Please? Pretty please?

True, it's not really early, but it was one of the finest things they ever made. I suppose I am just talking about all the bikes they made before the shiteness!

:D

I love early Saracens and owned a gold (well more kind of champagne) Killi Flyer. No photos though. :cry:

Probably the only frame I'd consider selling the Clockwork or E4 for......that or an ink blue Zaskar LE :?
