I might be wrong here, but this seems fake. The "syntax errors" in the text seem a bit forced. I've talked with Russians in English before and their syntax errors (due to direct translation from Russian) were nothing like this. Of course I am no expert and I could be completely off the mark.

If anyone's interested in placing a bid, he should research the matter more. Even if the guy is from Belarus, as he claims, the system is not a '80s clone (most probably). After the fall of the Soviet Union, the 8 bit systems found a new market. Spectrums and C64s were sold and were very popular during the '90s and a lot of recent homebrew software originated from these countries.

So it may be an actual Spectrum (sold in the '90s over there) which went under heavy modification.

It's like a set of old-fashioned typewriter keys attached to a block of wood!
Bizarre..

Clone ZX Spectrum, which I sell, I have got at the master who has made it personally for myself. It long used this computer. The master approves, that the computer and today perfectly works.
That almost reads like a forum post from bondage.com :lol:

He has some really niceother clones though. If I had the cash/space I would be very tempted to start collecting the speccy clones.
