Minty fresh 1994 (I think?) Saracen Protrax (special equipment!) bike.

This looks to have done about 250 miles in total in its life, and the guy I got it off claimed it had never been off road - I can believe it.

Basically, its a pretty well equipped lower-mid range retro bike, would make a good commuter, or maybe wife/GF retro bike? I would keep it as it rides very nicely, and always wanted one BITD, but I have limited storage, and need to save it for, er, pimpier machines :)

Leeds, but I am willing to travel to Manc/Sheffield/Durham/York/ or anywhere near-ish by train with it if someone pays the fare (cheaper than postage!)

Thorpie, I dont want to be the catalyst in a divorce mate, ive been there before, my boyish good looks have been a bit of a burden...
