- FS: RETRO & custom titanium Saracen
Well as I mentioned on Retrobike a few weeks ago, I’m now selling my 1997 Saracen Kili Ultra Titanium. Complete custom build.
Full M951 XTR groupset, the whole bike is in immaculate condition bar the scuff marks on the cranks.
19″ frame c-c, it measures 21″ up to the top of the seat-tube and the seatpost as shown in that pic (it’s a 10th anniversary Syncros Ti post by the way 🙂 ) is at near full extension.
It’s a pretty long low position, full on late 90’s XC race bike and the stem is a 110mm Pace:
Straight blade rigid titanium forks (super light, way lighter than the much-sought-after Kona P2 Ti forks)
First generation Mavic CrossMax ceramic wheels, the coating is still fine, no cracks and only very minor wear. Wheels straight and true, bearings all perfect and the bearing adjustment tool is included.
Also included is a spare pair of XTR shifters (same as currently fitted) and a spare XTR rear mech, again identical to the one on there. there’s no probs with any of the existing or spare kit but I know how difficult it can be getting spare parts!
Absolutely totally unique, very rare bike and it’s a bit of a heartbreak to sell it but I need the space and the money. As it’s a full custom build I will NOT split it, so please don’t ask! Weight as pictured is 20.6lb however I won’t be including the pedals in the sale (they’re only cheapo spds just put on for the pictures).
£975 for a piece of retro MTB history.Posted 4 years ago
