OK folks, just a quickie to let anyone who cares know that I got the bike in the end and payed cash on collection. The guy seemed really decent too. Thanks to the power of eBay I now have my Raleigh DHO. I'll post it up in the post 1998 area...

I took it for a little thrash on the XC trails around Bristol. It was hard work on a full blown DH build with a 48tooth front ring but I loved evry minute.

Oh and thanks for the advice from you guys. It was much appreciated.

Nah we don't care

:lol: That's great news, really glad you got sorted, and that you're enjoying the bike ... welcome to the money pit!

So I guess you were both being cautious and a bit suspicious (ebay will do that to you) and it lead to looking shady, probably from both sides? Had a similar thing recently where an eBay seller and I were dancing around each other both thinking that the other was dodgy, he turned out to be a nice fella too! :facepalm:

This thread really needs photos...
