Yup, pay a little more and buy from a less mickey mouse source.

PS 80 Sidney Street (Google Streetview!) does not fill me with confidence as a registered office!


It's an address for a holding company.. there's loads of ltd companies registered there..

Guessing it's one of those limited company for 35p and a pickled gherkin type setups?

99% sure it'll be a scam

I would not even consider sending them 50p, let alone 50% of the bike's value

Think with your head, not your heart on this one.

Do not send them a penny. You will be scammed.

Inspired by the goodwill of the royal wedding I've decided to go for it.

You will lose your money, I can 99.9% guarantee this.

No bike will ever turn up from them.

DO NOT SEND THEM A PENNY
