    You know what "they" say about temptation, Yield to it ! :smile: To be fair its probably only me that says that.
    The problem in the past has been the cost of getting anything across the channel but l have a contact with a van who does the trip now and then and he is willing to take things from time to time for a reasonable price. Just to say that from my point of view there is no hurry and the bike will be available anytime because l am not going to advertise it.

    Yes agree to that , i got in touch with the seller of the second one and it sounds like someone has painted over the lower section of the forks and it might well have a frozen seat post

    It's an amazing price but I fear it might be an absolute steal. The same seller is flogging a locked iPhone with the claim, "I found it on the street, called the owner but she had called the insurance already so she wasn't interested in collecting it." hmmm...

    I watch various item categories on Gumtree, most especially caravans, motorhomes and classic cars. As a result of this I normally send in somewhere 10 & 15 complaints each week asking for them to be withdrawn as they are very obviously fraudulent!!!
