Fake Zipps?

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

The same pic shows up on AliExpress, DHGate and a few other places. They're likely to be fake or not in the possession of the CL poster.

"Shown in the picture is a 404 front, instead you will actually receive an 808 front!" So the seller says that's not the actual picture of what you're getting. As to scam or not, I haven't a clue.
