Good to see something harking back to the days when Saracen was a decent brand!

I was wondering if anyone has any tips for finding a few parts I need to replace on an old Saracen I have.... It`s a 1993 model but I`m not sure whether its a Traverse or a Kili Elite .. The frame color is Flamboyant Ultra Violet ... The thing is, I looked at a catalogue of Saracen bikes for 1993 and I seem to have Kili Flyer Elite parts on a frame whose color should be Ocean Blue not Ultraviolet... I want to restore the bike to its` 1993 specs but the catalogue lists only a Traverse and a Kili XTR Elite as having the Ultraviolet color... Also my forks are the rigid Max Strut Chromoly Ultra Lights and not suspension.. Only the Kili Flyer Elite offers the rigid forks option... It still has the original Tioga Alchemy headset etc.. One thing which is on my frame but nowhere in the 93 catalogue is my frame has the seat post clamp as part of the frame itself... Any help would be appreciated guys.... I want to try and restore the bike back to how it looked when I bought it in 1995 ready for next summer, at the minute I`m slumming it with a Scott and it doesn`t have the same class as an old Saracen....
