    @jazzythumper Right, its time to start planning the next phase of works....I am looking for ideas, drawings and eventually plans etc

    3 bed semi in Bexley, looking to build the 4th & 5th bedrooms (5th will be loft conversion) + convert the garage into a play room and build a new garage filling up the side access. Corner plot overlooking allotments. Prob a good 9 months away from having the money to do it but we have a tendency to rush into things and forget / miss important bit (like not installing underfloor heating in the whole ground floor last time we did the place up)

    @amey After my original V1 got totalled last year I contacted Matt in Dec '13. Was quoted £800 then for the frame, another £150 fork.. of course when bidding for this one, the thought crossed my mind, but the V1 I had originally fitted me really well.

    Do I regret buying it, not at all.....it's what I wanted.

    I think so, I sort of switched off after my wife mentioned the numbers....

    Yes will have a V1, might keep it ratty looking and have the most expensive shit looking bike

    @countryboj

    Feck me...import Tax, was expecting a bill but:

    £28 - Customs Charge
    £157 - Import VAT
    £8 - Clearance Fee

    £193 in total...+ Initial costs this frame is going to cost me just shy of £1k

    And it'll still need a lick of paint, I think I will need to sell of some spare parts I have lying around !
