Hey nice bonty...was riding a an old steel myself , along while ago i also found a BontyTi...so tis possible to find them, but be careful mine developed s crack around the chainstay ... (this happened after K.B. had autographed it!...). So the moral of the story is prehaps stick with steel?

Nice bonty again. Deserves its place with the others. Looks like a proper rider as well and I mean that as a compliment :D

I've read on the other sections on here about Bonty's rusting badly, on seattube etc. Is that a common thing or not? Just curious :?

You getting it repaired? That's real unfortunate.

Really nice one :D
I haven´t seen another one like mine so that´s really cool.
I´ve never ridden without suspension though, must be stiff riding rigid.
I bought a mavic front wheel that also accomodates discbrake as I really want to do like you have.
I´ve seen people adding a rear discbrake tab, but I don´t know if I would dare risk someone welding on my bonty :?
Great rider
Jan

hi

thought i'd drag this thread out as i'll soon be dragging the beast out the shed!

the final M950 bits of the puzzle have arrived, rear wheel (with amazingly the same rim as the WI front) chainset, shifters and a rear Vee.

perfect timing for strapping the baby seat on the back and taking my new little fella out.



ps. do you think a rasta king would be overkill?

hmmmmmm
