    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 As a result of this I normally send in somewhere 10 & 15 complaints each week asking for them to be withdrawn as they are very obviously fraudulent!!!

    I always bid my budget, as the price climbs as bids come in until it ends, so I will either win at on or below budget or lose because it exceeded my budget

    In the superb condition it is in and so far from the close of the auction it could well go for quite a deep pocket figure?

    Not convinced. It's been resprayed, mudguard eyes on the forks, low-end crankset - could be something like a modified Raleigh Clubman (teardrop lugs) ?

    This is nice although I couldn't place it in the Raleigh catalogues:

    https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https://www.ebay.co.uk/ulk/itm/152899184014

    Maybe one of the frameset only models. It sold once for £210 But was then fairly quickly relisted.

    This era of Raleigh frames is a bit of a mare......
