Good point ...
Actually, what I'd ideally like is the help of an RBer since it's not straightforward. There's a bike on ebay.it located in Milan - and I want the crankset and ideally the bottom bracket. The rest of the bike is nothing special to me and I'm perfectly willing to let a third party have it in return for removing the cranks and sending them on. That, of course, requires time and expertise and so is basically strictly RB territory.
The seller is prepared to send it to me in Brussels, but quoted me €90. That would be on top of a slightly overpriced €130 for the bike, so that's €240 for the crankset, minus whatever I managed to get back for the bike after throwing new cranks on. Postage within Italy is quoted at €30 which is better, but the listing says that collection is preferred.
Personally, I don't think that anyone will be able to help but I don't think the bike will sell either so I'll wait til the end of the auction and ask the seller if he'll split the cranks off. I can send him a cheapo replacement to complete the build if he wants.
The bike is this one, but the way:

Perhaps you should indicate what help you are hoping to receive. I know a number of people in Milan, but much would depend on teh extent of the help needed.
