UK shipping is always a issue for you guys accoss the pond. Funnily enough I use Retrobike UK for trying to source out old parts. They have a great Auction Finder tool that sources out all the Ebays but you probably already know this.

Bike shops now get these coming in once in a while for service. Most owners don't really know their value, and will usually not put them up for sale. Send a nice letter email to some popular bike shops here and ask them to be on the lookout for certain bikes. As long as you promise to offer some serious money, the bike owners will probably be glad to let the bike go and get a new one at the same bike shop. The bike shop may help with shipping old bike.
A win-win situation.

Kijiji or Craigslist, or even ebay is the best bet to hunt one of these down, just do a search once or twice a week.

Breezer Cloud Nine?
I know someone that has a MINT condition Breezer Cloud Nine in blue... I think he would part with it if the price was right. Only catch is it's a size Small.
PM me if you're interested...

Here's an ebay auction I just noticed earlier this week, for a really vintage Mountain Goat. Asking price is a bit steep for my wallet, but I would love to be sponsored for this...and it's a local pickup:
Not totally vintage parts, but it's probably my dream vintage bike.
Does anybody remember those bolt-on suspension forks that the MG team riders used? You would flip the front fork around backwards and attach a parallelogram linkage ahead of the stock blades, and move the wheel onto the bottom of the link. Had a through-rod with rubber bumper donuts that looked suspciously like re-purposed skateboard bumpers...
