All he’s told me is he’s ripped the hanger off and he needs a new rear end/rear triangle

I have asked can he weld it and he said there is nothing to weld

So is it the seat stay, mech holder that's damaged for that you'd have to go through a spesh dealer.

So a rear end refers to a rear triangle. OK then, "big hit" refers to what?

I find the whole reference to a "big hit rear end" as totally useless. How are we supposed to be able to work out what it is? Why not just say "I need a new rear triangle for my bike, details below". But to not even say what bike it was for is sure to get an absence of help.

How did Rookie know that Fil_b's brother had a Speccy?

Hmmm, OK I have just followed the link and now I see that "big hit" is actually meant to be "Big Hit", ie the name of a bike!
If Fil_b had used capital letters in the correct place some of this confusion would have been avoided. (Certainly for me it would have!) :lol:

No apologies necessary, because I was not offended (not even close). :)
I like to help where I can, but I was unable to even understand the request for help.

Tbf. Spoke to a specalized dealer and they spoke to specalized and they have no parts. Too old they said

One frame on eBay. Just seeing what other options he has

Thank you

Its an old clunker, I'd look at reframing it with a more modern frame and updating a few bits as he went.
This for example

Could probably be used with 26" wheels initially as it only lowers the BB by 1/2"
