Had a tip off from a LBS that cycle wholesalers could be a major way forward in sourcing retro parts. Has anyone done this and what would be required to buy from them (membership? VAT number? etc).

Depends on who you want to deal with a certain one in manchester will probably deal with anyone. Others require you have a retail premises or business details etc (internet shops) nearly all wholesalers have never dealt with public direct.

I work for a nationwide wholesaler (not bike parts) I think you will find that wholesalers do not hang on to old stock for very long, once it has been replaced by a new model the old stuff is discounted to get rid of it and make room for new stuff.
