That is the bike i have been looking for! Its is the SAME as the one that some tw*t stole frm me way back in 93!

If you are selling then i really really would like that bike! :D :D



Hi, sorry to let you down :(

I have decided to keep it for a bit. I get bored of things pretty quickly so if it does come up for sale, you have first pickings ;)



Thanks all,


James

It's this one isn't it, from the 1992 catalogue?

yes dammit :lol: stop rubbing my nose in it!

the one i have been searching years for! That picture has only just turned up last month, before that i was searching blind with only a coloured reflector bracket and my memory!

My heart jumped when i saw this, but alas it looks like james has decided to keep it :cry:

edit: actually that picture is slightly different, look at the cable routing. That's what confused me in the saracen thread, but james' bike is the one like mine.

actually, if you have decided to keep it then i would really appreciate more photos of the bike and exactly what equipment it had.

I have been searching for parts at the same time as looking for the bike and was going to build one up with one of those ebay frames if i couldn't find an original one.

Eeeek, sorry.


I am more than happy to help you out if you build you own, I will make a thread about the bike so you can see absolutely everything.

If I do decide to sell it, you get first pickings, so its all cool.

Oh yes you're right. Accurately dating these early Saracen frames can be very confusing indeed. The dropouts look the same as one of my Bankrupt ones, with almost, but not quite, the same top tube routing.

Bad luck on not getting this one this time but I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.

Hi

Can anyone help? I've got a saracen tufftrax that I've had for a while and never really ridden. It is totally as new. Probably covered 15-20 miles on road.

Not sure if it has any value or how much its worth.

I would like to sell it, so any advice welcome!
Thanks.

Welcome to the site. You might want to ask in here - Early Saracen Lovers Anonymous - It's a home for all things old and Saracen.

Yours is a peach! 93/4, I think. That paint job was/is lovely. That one looks in perfect condition, I like! Definite Saracen of the Month contender! (When they ever get round to doing it!)
