    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...

    That's enough out of you, legs. Shut up and pedal.

    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.
