Mmmmmmmmmmm, tricky one this. It's old-school technology (not injection etc) so it's a dirty, thirsty two stroke, hence not really worth a lot even if it is really only a couple of years old.

No feedback, no other items for sale etc.

It does'nt look like it's in the UK to me, almost certainly a scam.

Hey Ribraff, you may not like Bristol, but saying that it's not in the UK is a bit harsh (check item location)

My thoughts exactly using the # sign for numbers, gear lube terminology seems dodgy to me.

You don't see many fences that look like that in the U.K. Plus the weather looks too good!
