Yep, it's stock. And in brand new condition. After some obsessive googling and spec comparisons, I figured out it's a 2007 (41T chainwheel, Tektro brakes, single color paint scheme in red not available in 2006). The brakes appear to have never been set up, as they rub on the left side and the adjusters are all the way out. The guy had the book and the number plate, all of the pads, the little display model spec hangar referring to the 2007 catalog, etc. Just some dust on the tires and some annoying Schwinn grips, otherwise brand new.
The guy mentioned in his ad that he wanted a beach cruiser. I happened to have an old (late 90's) Dyno that I haven't sat on in years that needed new tires and some TLC, so he took that +$50.
So as I see it, the major upgrades would be the fork and the cranks. Which is most important? I've tried looking up cranksets, but they're all different - some have the cranks and a shaft, some have the cups/bearings - I assume I need a set that has the cups/bearings, no? Chromo fork?
Eh, none of that will matter until I can make it around the track without throwing up
