Look at the prices of Salsa and Surly in the US and compare with the UK .
To what aim? I've already given you the US price of a Vaya frameset, $1,000, this at $750 isn't so different as to cause a fuss. You may call it bonkers, I'm merely pointing out that it isn't any more/less bonkers when compared with other US makes.
There was a time when I could import SOMA frames (And pay the tax/duty) cheaper than a UK equivalent, those days are gone...
Sorry,I thought the Vaya price you posted was in £'s had to check that it's in $'s,(it's me you know ).That's even worse than I thought,when I bought my Blue Vaya frameset from Triton cyclies it was £445 delivered.
I'll take back the 'bonker's' and trade it for an 'expensive for what you get for your money' if that's OK
