Too good to be true.

Seems like a good deal to me, just a bit worried where it came from since the description appears to have been written by someone who doesn't know the sharp end from the blunt one

what I don't like about gumtree is the fact it pinpoints your location on a map.

That's still not a great deal. I bought a similar one (Osprey Eagle) in a similar sort of state for about 1500 if I recall.

Seems a strange Ad. Someone from Fermanagh also claiming they're from Belfast? The map is pinpointing a place near Larne, Co. Antrim and the phone number is a southern Ireland mobile???????????

Lots of no-add-ups here.
