Ah, just got a reply. He says it's the same bike, that he took the rack
off, and that it's included in the sale.

You can modify the description text now after bids have been placed, I think
it is just the title that has to stay the same.

The subsequent pics seem to show the bike with a mainstand (which
surprises me, as I wouldn't have expected one on such a bike). But in
the first picture, I'm fairly sure there's no sign of a mainstand.

Also, is the brake caliper red in the first pic? It's not in the
other ones...

I think you're right to be suspicious.

I don't know if this is relevent but on the 1st pic the front brake calliper
seems to be red but on the other photos the other side of it shows it
silver. Also on the back wheel on the new photos there seems to be something
hanging down under the chain guard which should be visible from the other
side but is not there on the original photo.

Having said that the new photos do seem to shop a very good condition bike
anyway....

Well I'm no expert but if you look at the first photo the distance
between the bottom of the numberplate and the reflector on the
mudguard appears to be shorter than on subsequent photos. It could be
parallax or something though.
