Where are you located? That is probably a $275-$300 bike in Boston ready to ride.

Looks like that bike will need at least brake hoods and probably tires.

I would be selling in NYC; your estimate is about what I was thinking once it gets fixed up. Seller's asking price is more though unfortunately. If it were my size I might consider as I really like the brown/gold combo.

$300 as a bike to flip? No way. Fork looks like it might be tweaked.

Yeah I wouldnt pay 300 to flip it, I would flip it for 250-300 maybe pay 100 for it. But that's a no go anyways. Too bad, the guy has another one buried in his garage that he says is in better condition, could've been a nice score if the price was right. Thanks for the advice.
