That's the kind of web site I wouldn't trust.
No company information whatsoever, "contact us" no phone, only an email of another domain.
That domain has an expired SSL certificate.
At least there it a US address and phone number.
That looks to me as that this web is a crawler, gathering offers from others, presenting them as own. IMO stay away

The image has been downloaded from Ebay, and the type of description is consistent with this guy:
https://www.ebay.co.uk/str/classiccarandbikebanners
He charges 12gbp minimum, so the lower price of the fake offer is a honey pot for any naive surfer.
