Nice one Coomber , I'll take a look at that buddy :wink: . I'm enjoying the challenge of getting an even coat of paint on it .TBH it looked bloody awful when I started with the yellow! :lol: Patchy as hell it was.

Good morning History Man :wink: the only bike that lives in the garage is the ratbike, and that's how it's gonna stay!
I do need a chainset, undecided on what one though. Not sure what make to go for either. I think black crank arms with silver rings would look good, but having said that , an M750-1 would also compliment the rear mech and brakes better , being a similar finish.

Mine has lots of nicks and scratches, but has also had the dropouts repaired as they became unbonded, which is something you should check, as this is apparently a fairly common fault with the earlier Endorphins.

Frame is looking better than i expected.

Careful with those wheels, the rims like to split around the spoke eyelets, espesh on rear. I rode mine for god knows how long without noticing.

Thanks, I think ! :lol:

Will keep an eye on those wheels. I have 4 pairs those Bonty wheels, all slightly different, and hope they don't split :shock:
