These are pretty much hens teeth I should think.

They look in reasonable condition (the frames), a new set of covers and a bit of powder coating needed perhaps?

Be very careful re this listing. They got ramped up on the first listing yet apparently didn’t make “reserve” above 600 quid! Have been listed again and yet again, now the sellers trying to do a cash deal at £600 under the radar. Too many scammers out there. Caveat Emptor.....

Seems odd to me as well, they went to £681 in the first auction... I just thought the winner backed out...

Isn’t this the lady that posted here sometime ago? A relative had died and left her a pile of parts and a car to sort out?

I suspect that maybe a friend has bid and it’s not been enough hence the relistings?? Don’t think it’s a scam.

no, I followed that to get a feel for the price (I have a pair myself) and the preset reserve was not met.

The sellers has other parts of interest, but I have not tried my luck yet (the reserve does not entice to bid).

The sellers are genuine, I have bought and collected items from them.
