I (in Germany) have bought Brompton parts several times from
http://www.sjscycles.co.uk
and was always pleased with service, delivery time and packaging.

Ebay is good for 'unwanted presents' (a lot never get used beyond a few miles). Also - there's Kinetics in Glasgow who are good for the bespoke versions.

But Avon Valley (the Folding bikes.co.uk people are usually good to deal with (though they haven't replied to my 'do you stock Moulton Mudguards? email') on the phone or with email.

I second Somnatash on SJS. See:
http://www.sjscycles.co.uk/sessionID...-Bikes-396.htm

They are very good for shipping abroad too.

Barato, I also live in Sweden (Lund) and recently bought a Brompton from http://www.foldingbikes.biz

Great service and speedy delivery. And you get the kevlar tyres and a cover included in the price. The price in Sweden also forced me to buy the bike from the uk, even if I normally support my LBS.
