Great scan. Saracen did used to be cool, why did it go so wrong for them? When I was getting my first MTB I hankered after one bad. Shame I went with a Raleigh.

That fillet brazed Kili Flyer Comp looks the business....still !

Wow, this brings back memories. I remember reading this at a mates house and drooling over the Killi Flyer. We were both cursed with Mustangs back then.

Saracen's peak must have been around 1991, remember the square tubed alloy e-stay Killi Flyer with Maguras?

Nope :( , no luck yet.

was a 22" black one on ebay a few months ago but was local pickup in london only, went for a couple of quid if I remember right, but it was still way to big for me.

have seen a blue resprayed one in york but I never can catch the owner.

If you do find one , I would be grateful .
:wink:

Has anyone got a Saracen catalogue containing the pink Tufftrax?.

I had a catalogue but the cover was different to this one shown here.....it was black and more of a square shape rather than A4,it had a column neare to the right hand side with photos running down it and the Sarancen logo and year at the bottom,It was pretty musc identical to this one here,but did have the pink Tufftrax inside.......

Bloody wish I could find it!!!
