There is one localy asking $400 USD. I offered $200 as I am close to where it is and can pick it up.. He countered $300. Not sure if it is worth it. The rear seat bars are missing the spring suspension, brakes, and rear fender. Not so excited about it. Might go look at it after the new years? Is it a 5 speed?

For a five speed, I'd grab it and run before the owner realises what he had!!

Got him to 250 USD will look at it and perhaps get it when we arrange a time. Fender looks bent. Will need a rack , fenders, springs, front wheel, and chain guard. Hard to find in the USA
Why does the front wheel have that large flange? Looks like a rear wheel. Forks do look flattened? Maybe to make room for the front wheel? Not right. I saved pic and blew it up. it will need some work. Will have to see it. Parts are too hard to find over here.
Havn 2nd thoughts. Too Hard to find parts here.

I decided against it. Just a little rough for my tastes. Agree it was a good price.
