Bought a new bike == well not new

Hello guys I just bought a used bike for 200 dollars. I want to know if the price I paid for it was good or if the guy ripped me off.

The bike is a 2000 POWERLITE RIOT and it has an S&M Fork, ALex Triple Wall wheels, DK IRON Cross Pedals, PRIMO Pro Bars, Primo Pro Stem and that's about all that I can see from it.

Post pics, the fork is good, and the wheels are strong. Those pedals will kill your shoes, and the bars are good too.

so how much do you think the mike should've cost? Did I get a good deal. I can't find that much on Powerlite...maybe because they are discontinued.

Yeah, same, the only thing i could think of that made it a little funnier, was the fact that Mudes name is Mike...

But its not that great...
