After recent purchases I'm not sure how I got this passed Mrs s_m (she is very very understanding)

Now just the long wait and potential customs charges :)

Balls, I had no idea before reading up how hard I'm going to be screwed by HMRC, I'll pay it and try to claim it back at a lower rate as its collectible.

Cheers

Shouldn't be hit too hard, depending on what your seller has put on the docket.

It's waiting for me at the depo, lovely Mrs s_m will pick it up whilst I'm at work. Annoyed at the import duty and VAT (as VAT would have been paid in USA as well I'm sure).

Never mind, now just 'need' a Paul chain keeper and a few other bits and pieces and she'll be a ripper. Best I keep those quiet for a while :)

Either my wife has told you about my high bum crack or you're pulling my leg :)

Frame was here waiting for me when I got home, it's lush :)
