    1992 Saracen Tufftrax

    That's a 1992 model year frame. Or at least the decals are. Spec, if original, suggests it may be a non catalogue 'special' or 'limited edition' bike sold off in late 1992 to clear out the Saracen factory for the newer 1993 bikes.

    1988 Marin Bear Valley

    Oh and to answer your axle query. Yes it's pretty much a straight swap if you can get your hands on a ~140mm axle for 130 OLD or ~145mm axle for 135mm OLD.

    1988 Marin Bear Valley

    Nice. I do like the late eighties pre zolatone Marins. And MT-60 Deore always looks great too. Looking forward to seeing how this one turns out.
