I emailed the seller and we're in the process of sorting out a box. ;)

Good stuff, enjoy it! I've always wanted one from seeing the Stiff adverts in MBUK circa 1998...

Not that I need another frame any ways :oops:

Ditto.They were always the exotic alternative to the shop brands.You drooled over but no way could afford.

Indeed, my hard earned pocket money at the time would only stretch to a Merlin Malt 1...

And the best thing about a Heckler? You could specify what colour you wanted each end. I used to have a brochure and it said something like blank frame, choose colour: red, yellow, green, polish... Whatever... That's why you rarely see two the same.
Anyone else spotted the white one on eBay?

Well done on winning at a good price, but if he is now going to post then that is a bit silly by the seller, as I asked the same and he never got back to me, and I imagine he would have had a lot more bidders if he had just offered it in the first place!

Bad news for him, good news for you it seems :lol:

Seller hasn't definately agreed on postage yet, so it could still go pear shaped. I get that parts of Wales are pretty isolated, so we've agreed to look into postage options (availability of a box and prices)

I've been there a few times, but as its a 4 hour drive from my house didnt fancy an 8 hour journey!

It is pretty isolated and in the woods around there, but still only 30 mins or so from Chester (from memory).
