2 Oxford Monster Chains with Padlocks for sale in Central London UK

Hello all,
a while ago I bought 3 Oxford Monster chains with padlocks to secure my bike to a lamppost or a tree as I don’t have a garage, this looked like the best solution: one chain around the tree, one around the bike and another one as a link.
This did cost me a small fortune as the retail price for these was around £130 each(!) last year but I was happy as I could sleep knowing the bike was safe “out there”.
Well, now that I am moving I don’t need two of the three chains so I would like to sell them at the price of £50 each- fair price I think - to fund my ½ (half) RTW trip.
The chains are in good working order (there is literally NOTHING you can do to damage these chains unless you involve heavy duty machinery...), padlocks been regularly lubricated, no theft attempted, I still have all 3 keys, and the two original carry pouches to strap them to the bike. Apparently they are one of the strongest chains you can find in the UK.

These chains sell at over £150 in the shops and at least at £100 on the internet, here is the cheapest link I could find: Oxford Monster 1.5m Chain & Padlock**Free Shipping** [OF802] - £99.99 : BikeBitz UK ::: Quality range of Motorcycle Parts, Accessories and Luggage
the product I am selling is the same.

Length: 1.5mt

From the website:
Sold Secure Approved
Thatcham Approved
5 Minute Attack Tested (Sledgehammer, Boltcropper & Drill)
11.5mm Hardened Ni-Cr-Mo Alloy Steel Shackle
11.5mm Triple Heat Treated Square Link Chain
Double Locking Mechanism with 2 Hardened Steel Bolts

Picture here is of one of the chains, both are identical.

Shall we meet here?

co-ordinates: 51 30 45.98 N, 0 11 36.09 W, where the chains used to be, opposite the Prince Edward pub in Princes Square, Bayswater, London W2 4NY?

Monday or Tuesday any time during the day except Mon eve and Tue lunchtime.
Ideal for me is Mon lunchtime but not really fussy as I live around the corner.
Will send you a PM with my mobile number.
Thank you for your time guys.
