    @Z4k really feel for you lad, personally I blame the seller. I sold a bike for 1800€ on Monday only wanted it picked up. A lad from Norway wanted it really badly, was so concerned about packaging it up correctly that I ended up having a mate package it and make the deal also insisted that it was insured fully for 2k. Ended up costing me a few hundred but I can sleep at night knowing some lad got his dream bike in good condition.

    Yep, it’s a stevens frame, run of the mill company over here in Germany. Bought it cheap 2nd hand for the parts it came with, kooka cranks, amp research fork and xtr cantis and wheelset.

    Been through a few hard months with my dog, he ripped his shoulder muscle badly, had 2 X-rays, 1 CT scan and a MRI. To top it off he cut his paw on some glass and it got infected. One of the problems over here in Germany is that a vet can’t by law recommend another vet or specialist so infuriating ended up seeing 3 different vets, I neurologist and a specialist dog hospital. Cost a small fortune but he’s my little sunshine in an overcast world. Thankfully he’s on the mend

    Not sure if this fits in this category but short bmx stem, hi rise bars, 1x10 drivetrain and other random old stuff

    Found an old Alpina tucked away in the garage, used to drive a 310 back in the 90’s, problem was I had to leave the windows open a tad and use the bike roof rack to lock the doors as they had no locks, made me all nostalgic

    Been doing a lot of work trying to get everything sorted on the 93 Range Rover, my mate signed up for a Baltic Sea tour next February. So many problems to fix but slowly getting there. The window mechanism broke so dropped it into the garage for a new one (been pretty hard to get parts over here due to Brexit, steering box should be here next week after 4 month wait). Unfortunately a mechanic dropped a rim on the bonnet but they repainted it and through in some new headlights and left me to sort out the decals. Got a couple of 303 keys, huge and heavy.

    I’ve found that it depends on the AD, my mate must of spent well over 200k in the last 5 yrs at our local shop but when he asked to get on a waiting list for the new explorer 124270 in 36mm the manager was talking about 2-3yrs. I asked about it with the guy that runs the service dept and he says he can get me one within a year. There doesn’t seem any real rules they stick with. Same with the Nautilis they do show up it’s just wether or not they want to do you a ‘favour’ kinda thing and sell it to you.
    A big thing is they don’t want you to just flip ‘em if they know your gonna keep it or it’s for a first time Rolex buyer they do try and help, we’ve managed to get a gmt, Daytona and a milgauss over the last year from the same shop, sorry for the crap photos

    Me too! I see some of that stuff over here in Germany but way too expensive for me. I’d really like to find one of the original bullseye cranks that yeti spec’d.
    Put some parts on a Marin today too, nothing retro except for the seat and Amp fork. Shame it’s too small but interesting design.
