Well done, you got that for an absolutely stonking price. I had my eye on it, and would have gone to £300, but I wasn't going to take out another Retrobiker in the process. Do think of me if you ever sell it though....

One of the issues you mentioned earlier in the thread was security. You're better off sending a cheque (and cheaper) than a postal order from a security perspective, because if he does a runner with the money the bank will be able to confirm the details of the account the cheque was paid into.
