Hi. I am new at this. I want to buy a bike that I can tune up and customize. I have been volunteering at a nearby co-op to learn basic bike servicing and I want a bike of my own at this point to get my hands dirty with.
I am supposed to meet this seller today to buy the KHS Express listed in the ad below. Is this a decent deal? I have searched google images, forums, etc to see any restored versions of this bike and just haven't seen that many. My novice impression is that KHS is a good brand nowadays- I have no idea about this older bike though.
***this is the ad:
Blue chromoly lugged/butted 19" KHS Express Mixte(fits 5'1"-5'7"), Suntour Seven with ratcheting stem shift, original KHS spring saddle, Pletcher rear rack with spring, 2 brand new gumwall 27 x 1 1/4" tires with steel alloy wheels(q/r front), cleaned, lubed, tuned and ready to ride now for $225! My cell is XXX-XXX-XXXX, no texts, or reply to ad with rider's height to check fit and the best time available or deleted as spam.
