http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/LHD-1985-L...ht_2924wt_1032

Their stuff looks nice, but I'm not familiar with them.. Has anyone dealt with them before? What's their work really like when you see it up close?

"Chalvanized" could be a play on the term "Chav", but that's not a very favorable expression in the UK so I don't know why they'd want to promote that type of impression.

It seems like all the Defenders offered by this seller look the same. I met a guy recently that imported one sold by these guys. The new owner (stateside) sold it less than six months later and was lucky to break even he told me.
Need I say more?
