Saracen bikes were built from ’67 to ’75 – the latter years were under the care of David Brand, who bought the brand and attempted to put bigger engines in the frames (though these ended up being less useful for trials competition).
Bikes like this one used a Sachs 125cc engine with a five-speed gearbox. Though the bikes were supposedly well-built, they were a bit too expensive and the company went out of business. After this, David bought the company and tried to bring them back. As you can guess, it didn’t work out.
The seller calls it a strong runner that “starts, shifts, and brakes as it should.” In addition to the Sachs motor, it features Dunlop trials tires, Amal trials throttle, Mikuni carb, and a few custom pieces – the exhaust, aluminum skid plate and alloy side panels. He adds that it rides in AHRMA Classic and is “a former 2005/2006 and 2015/2016 AHRMA National Championship winner in the Classic division in the intermediate and expert categories.”
