Looks lovely Lewis, bet you can't wait to get that cleaned up, although it doesn't look too bad from the pictures. Will be following this with interest 8)

Looks great. I really want to get hold of a set of those segmented Saracen forks.
Should clean up a treat. Welcome to the Saracen owners club. :wink:

cheers chaps. not had a spin yet - there's a huge amount of play in the rear hub.

had a closer look round it. left hand crank is wobbly but tapers good so hopefully just needs a clean and reinstalling. aforemention play in rear hub. seatpost moves freely and rear mech is indexed to perfection! all cables are greased.

other than clean all i need to do is sort rear hub and adjust front mech.

should be fully rigid for the first time in 15 years very soon!

Bike looks cool, bet it'll come up a treat with some good ol' elbow grease.
