I bought it.....
I made a low offer and the seller bit my hand off. Unfortunately it has a stuck seat post, not tried to properly remove it yet. Fortunately it's stuck at just the right height for me. It's got a real 'patina', lots of marks but solid. Wheels are good, drive chain is oily and filthy but salvageable. I think it will clean up ok:)

Nice to see its gone to a good home who will look after it.

Rather fortuitous regarding the height of the stuck seatpost, you could definately leave as is, but if you decide to try and unglue it, there's plenty of advice on here regarding that issue, would be a shame to damage the iconic paintwork.
