Cheers fella.... Gives me an idea. Do you reckon guys your side of the pond would be interested in shipping that far mind ? Im not sure how much it is to ship a bike to the States but I bet its not cheap !!
Because of how much I put into completely stripping and restoring the Bonty, ide probably rather keep it as a whole bike. Not so worried about the Rocky Mountain as I bought it from one of the guys on here in good condition already
Had it about 18 months now so time for something new !!
Cheers for all your help. All the more welcome
P.S The m730 I rubbed down with 2000 - 2500 grit wet and dry (carefully of course) and polished it back with brasso and hard elbow grease !! The photo funnily enough dont do it enough justice !! You really can see your own reflection like a mirror
Shipping a bike to the states or vice versa isn't too exspensive if done in two boxes via a standard postal service (not a courier like ups or fedex). I've now shipped bikes/frames to Australia, Hong Kong, Thailand, U.K, Alaska, and France...a year ago, never shipped to any of those, ha.
Thanks for the tip on the cranks- awesome! With all the work you put into that Bonty, why sell it???
