That's really sweet Joe and although I understand your tyre choice pictured I'd love to see it with some amberwalls, even if only for a photo.

And cool link Jan!


Heya Ed, i have listened and after its maiden 70 mile ride on Saturday i swapped out the tyres for the said Amberwalls :wink:

And i agree it does look better.

I too suspect it maybe an early Offroad model. I was just transferring the info from the seller.

Thanks for your positive comments. I intend on finding some Bonty forks and replacement brakes has i type 8)

Wow, what a nice Bonty!
I think the tires are perfect for the trails :)

I don´t want to upset you in anyway, but i actually think you have an original Off-Road. Really cool bike.
Take a look at the link below.

Off-Road vs Race Lite


Hey Jan, thats a great link on the Bonty. I would 100 % say i have a Bontrager Off Road.

It shares every early feature shown in the link you posted :wink:

I guess this makes it a bit more special :?: I have a 1990 MBA test on the Bonty Off road and this was my dream ride at 14 years young!

I need to find a template for the anti chainsuck plate to re-make it. And also ill try and hunt for some early Bonty forks :roll: Hens teeth :!:

Yeah, the guy who has the site really is the man regarding Bontys but also Ritcheys.
He has another site called Old Mountain Bikes that´s dedicated to all things Ritchey.
The red race lite in the comparison pictures is the frame I bought from him.

It has stepped ferrules on it...They fit perfect into the riveted bosses.

What would be the fork to use on an Off Road. Would it be the early welded version? I know the later ones had bonded dropouts etc.

Id be ecstatic if i could find a suitable set :D

Managed to find an NOS m-732 XT rear hub, 732 brake levers, Black m-730 XT chainset...
