A long shot here. Does anyone who is planning to go to Curborough live near a place called Tredegar, which I believe is in Wales? If so, there's a single wheel I want to bid on, but only if someone can deliver to Curbs for beer tokens as the cost of postage would mean it's not worth the money. :)

Thanks Tom, but I really need to get it to me and Curbs seemed the best option.

Am happy to bring the wheel up to Curbs if it can be relayed from Tredegar to the Basingstoke area...??

Thanks chaps. It ends on Wednesday so if something can be sorted that would be good. Don't anyone go to too much trouble though!

Sadly not Jim, although....we might have some drivers on loan to London Road depot in Gloucester, and I think Stagecoach Cotwolds are still using Cwmbran depot for their PCV driver testing....lemme check with the Deputy OM tomorrow, they usually commute in a "non service ready but drivable" reserve fleet bus up, or if on driver training they bring their own down and back...sneaking a wheel on board either would literally be a piece of p155

Update: Cotswold drivers do come down here still, but haven't been down so far in the last 2 week's due to issues with their training bus :roll:

Auction ended at lunchtime today without bids so it's over for the moment. It might get relisted, but it sounds like delivery is going to get complicated and probably not worth it. Thanks anyway folks.

What sort of wheel is it Steel Wolfrace ?

Sister lives near but I'm not planning to visit till after August.

It's a 13" steel wheel without tyre. I'm in no hurry to get it but I assume the seller will want it collecting pretty soon if he re-lists it.

Jim if it relists let me know, I have a long weekend this weekend (Thursday night to Wednesday morning) if push comes to shove I could run it to someone nearby going curbs way
