    I just messaged him...
    Hi mate,

    I'm very interested, but first can you write "This is not a dodgy Gumtree scam" and today's date on a piece of paper, and then take a photo of it next to the bike.

    Last time I bought a bike on here I went to collect it and woke up 3 days later in a bathtub full of ice cubes with one of my kidneys missing, so as you can imagine I am somewhat cautious these days!

    Cheers,

    Lee

    Ugly but I'd pay £150. Have messaged him.

    You still on about that kidney?

    If you really feel you need two you can have the blasted thing back. I can get another.

    You can keep it if you have lung going spare? Pretty much blackened my current two and still have another 30-40 odd years to go on them.

    So did I.
    I also emailed him asking to buy it, and got a warning from Gumtree that the ad looks dicey and they are monitoring it. Obviously they did.

    Apart from the alcohol poisoning you mean?

    Haha, no mate it will all be smoking related ;)

    I don't mind the occasional Morgan's and lemonade or Jack and coke, but actually being drunk lost its appeal by the time I was old enough to legally do it. I've only been tipsy once this year and can't even remember the last hangover I had.
