  1. hi thanks still have one missing but its a result, they didn't arrest the man who had it as he had proof of buying it of this swap site so he says he bought it in good faith, they also removed a road bike from his livingroom, he gave some mobile numbers of the man he bought it off but if they are pay as you go they cant trace them so no wiser about the rm will keep you posted cheers mark
