Hey everyone,

Hope i landed in the right spot, found a ton of useful info so far from this site.

Thought about trying to get it for $20 and building it up from the bones that it is.

Welcome to bikeforums!

For what you're going to spend turning that into a real bike, you could just buy a nicer real bike. There are tons of good bikes on CL ... get one that hasn't been run over by a street sweeper. ;)

As for the seller's suggestion that "everything else is normal wear and tear," take a look at the bottom of the front chainring. That's miles past normal. No front brake or lever, missing cables, not optimistic about the rear derailleur. I could go on...

I would tend to agree this is a fairly low end bike and just isn't worth fixing up in its current condition. Also from what I can see the frame is most likley damaged meaning it is basically worthless. I probably wouldn't even take this bike if it was free not even worth the time to pick it up.

+1 Not much left there, but what happened to it?
Here is the 'explanation"

NEEDS-RIMS/TIRES/TUBES
I had this bike for a little while just sitting around collecting dust in my basement everything as is
I had the bike locked up to a pole downtown and someone started to kick my rims and that's how all that ended up happening but everything else is just normal wear and tear like an average bike I just want to get it off my hands and let someone else enjoy it please call/text if your seriously interested in it

Frame might be worth $10, but look for bent fork and frame tubes. It looks more than simple vandalism to me, someone stomped the living sH*t out of it.

It's a puny frame too, for someone under 5'3". The right price is "free."

It would be cheaper to bring this back to life.
