I think its possible the big ends is on its way out, its been loosing power and making a nasty noise.

If this is the case how much am I looking at for a rebuild? Bottom end kits an bearings are going for about £35 on eBay new but I know it's a bit of a job To do.

the knocking is like a rattle from the heat shield on the down pipe... So don't know if its that...

Big end wear doesn't sound like a heat shield rattle - so I'd suggest getting a second opinion on that score.

It would helpful to know what engine, mileage and service history.

If it's got a full service history then I'd be surprised if the big ends went at 61k. When they go you get a solid thumping knock - rather than a rattle as you're describing. It's a hollow metal to metal knock - have a look on Youtube for clips of big end failure and then compare it to the noise you are getting.
