1974 Schinn Suburban for US$90.00

http://orlando.craigslist.org/bik/2367585125.html

Should I go get it? I can't wait to throw a nice Brooks into a personally restored vintage bike, and this one is my age for the extra Q effect. (Owner claims the chrome and tubes are in near perfect condition)

Thank you for taking the time to reply.

That's a little below the going price around me. They go for around 120 give or take a few 10s. They are a really nice ride. Nothing like a big heavy hunk of steel to take the bumps out of the road.

The shorty fenders have me perplexed. Insofar as I know the '74 5-speed Suburban came with full fenders and a mattress saddle.

Market is around 125 in good ready to ride condition. Modifications from original spec would detract from values.

Thank you for the replies. The fenders were cut, I wasn't impressed with the overall appearance of the bike in person. Well, maybe next time, thank you for the contributions!
