Sorry, I messaged the seller with some questions about the bike and they immediately removed it.
Grabbed a pic anyway.

This bike has been discussed at length here:

viewtopic.php?f=2&t=379265

I've provided some pictures on page 4 of the thread that help support the opinion that it may not be.

The cable stop was more a worry and confusion (I could see it was wider in the pics, not convincingly so, but just) still not good practice to use that mech there.

I remembered.. ok read the first post.. and it's a respray so must have been added at the time.
