Also don't forget to ask if they have any other bikes to sell. When I bought my Raleigh Twenty, I asked to old Englishman what other bikes he had and as he showed me through his garage he had some modern box store bikes that he wanted list price for, but he had a beat up Schwinn StingRay hanging from the rafters. I picked it up for $15. Turns out it was a first year 1964. After doing nothing but taking the electrical tape from the original polo seat, I posted it on the Schwinn forum and sold it for $500.
