+1. Why would anyone set up a photo shot like the Gazelle and not have the chain on properly? Looks idiotic. Of the 3, the Gazelle has the most potential, but would likely cost between $100 to $200 to get in ridable condition, even doing the work yourself.

You would get more answers if you stated the intended use and what aptitude you have for mechanical repairs and maintenance.

Thank you for answers.
For now, bike with gears is enough, i need it for a daily cycling and sometimes go to work.
All three is in condition ready to go as far as i know.
I tryed single speed once and i liked.
How much it will cost to make some of those bikes in to really good one?
But at this moment i just wanna buy some to daily ride as i said.

I trust you, just i want to know what is main problem in those bikes.
I didnt tested them yet, but will try some of them tommorow, i have no idea how they should ride.
In my imagination - if i get on bike, and it goes without any noisy sounds and rides well then its ok and i should take it, but after reading your expierenced opinions - im wrong.

Those 3 bikes is under 200$ , and my budget is low at the moment, but what i want is get some ride now and repair/renew it monthly while riding.

I post 3 more in the same budget category, and from all 6 bikes which one is best from what i can get (cuz definetly i will buy one of them and thats why im asking you which one)

You are also showing us bikes in different sizes - that last one - the Peugeot is quite tall and is made for someone 6' tall or thereabouts. First find out which size frame you require. Then give us your location and we can be of more help.

I am aprox 6'2 so Peugeot is the best if we look at the size, in advert seller mentioned that its really good bike for tall people.
And im located in Latvia,Riga (Baltic states) so you wouldn`t be able to help me with that

If you are 6'-2", that Peugeot is your best bet. It also looks like it's in better condition than most of the others.

Yes, I know where Latvia is. I would suppose it is a bit harder to find quality bikes there!

It is, and everything is overpriced, so need to choose what i can afford.
Old rubbish is overpriced also, and there isnt anything lower ~150$.

I think my choice will be Peugeot , cuz its perfect for me by size. I will test it tommorow, btw price is a bit more then 200$.

The Puegeot seems like a good bet and isn't over priced if it is close to $200 and ready to go.
