Saracen

Saracen were motorcycles produced from 1967 to 1975, firstly by Robin Goodfellow of Cirencester, Gloucestershire, and then by David Brand in Watford, Hertfordshire.

These were trials machines fitted with a 125cc Sachs two-stroke engine with five-speed gearbox. The result was a kit that was of high quality and well made with a good frame. Although successful, the machines were expensive and the company lost money so went into liquidation in August 1971.

David Brand bought the firm and added larger engines that turned out to be less suitable for trials use. By then the Spanish marques were flooding the market, so Saracen came to an end.
