Forks, wheels, tyres, saddle, grips, BB, bearings, gear inners and outers, cassette and chain. Changed to a bash ring and obviously a trip to the powder coaters and some decals.
I bought the bike based on the original pictures shown there but they hide a multitude of problems. It looked and felt like a real dog when I got my hands on it. The forks were shot (the bolt thru clamp had been overtightened and sheared the lowers) the BB and all of the bearings were gone. The cassette, chain, crankset and jockey wheels etc were so packed full of gunk that it would not come apart even after all bolts removed etc. The front rotor had been rubbing on the fork mount so the centre got a respray too.
Total spend: £715
As for longevity of the white finish… who cares. That is why you take a picture when the build is finished. Memories.
