Awesome. As you bought it, is how I remember 1996. A Saracen, with riser bars.

The mid 90s for me were full of exotic bikes in magazines, carbon Treks, Zaskars, Merlin titanium, but in reality we all had a Saracen or a Raleigh of some sort.

Finally got this build complete and I’m overjoyed with how it’s turned out... reunited it with the original owner today and he couldn’t believe how fantastic it’s turned up and remembered the day he picked it up from the shop!

I’ll get to try it in the street when the snow clears... here’s some pics and I’ve stuck it into BOtM Feb for what it’s worth. It’s by no means a unicorn but is like the day it left the shop and i do love the colour and how it changes in the light....

Feels incredibly light too... I’ll weigh it when I post the full spec list....

Hope you like it and build list will follow when I get chance...

Cheers
Andy

Ps.... next up? Either my sane era green Saracen Kili Team or my 1998 Scott Endorphin!!! ;)

Re:

Looks great. I love a simple period correct, catalogue spec build.
The only thing I'm not keen on is the grips.

Thanks mate.... yeah I was gonna go black ODI but you know I just thought I’d be a little different with this one.... looks better in the flesh and if they are too lairy then all you do is ride it and your hands hide them :LOL: :LOL:
