If you look at how small the welds are and the darkness of the BB threads, I think it is a steel frame just painted "aluminum" color.
The seller just doesn't know anything about bikes or materials.
The frame looks in good shape.
Seems a good deal for anyone looking to build up a portable bike.

That is a NWT frame. I have one only torn down to the basics. As I intend to sell it, I liked the price for just the frame! The color combo is nice too.
