Call me a grumpy sod but after this extremely dubious Gumtree ad for a VERY fake Zaskar I thought I'd do the decent thing and point it out to them lest some poor sod bought one of these £80 supermarket bikes for £130 thinking it was a GT.

And for my trouble.. they couldn't give a S*** ! 'we've not had any other complaints'.

SO if you have any FAKE merchandise you want to shift I'd recommend Gumtree.

Well i have just sent him a msg too, asking him if he is taking the piss!!!
At the end of the day if somebody buys it thinking it is a Zaskar then obviously its not going to be anyone how wants a Zaskar for the right reasons is it.
That has to be the worst Zaskar FAKE i have ever seen, well even the worst GT FAKE i have ever seen

In all seriousness if someone knows enough to want a Zaskar specifically, they would be pretty stupid to not have the slightest clue what one looked like..

No idea. . .never really taken any notice of Orange bikes.. and the Patriot I thought my brother had is, in fact, a Sub 5.. so I probably have never seen one.
