Is this a good deal

Starting to fill the garage, so I want to make sure this is worth my time. What do you think for 10 bucks?

Small pictures, but for $10 I'd grab it, rims don't look rusty, and there is a good chance it was made in Austria.

The last two bikes on my list are a 50's Lenton Grand Prix and a '64 Raleigh Record.

For $10 I'd buy it right now, for spares if it isn't rideable.

Thanks. Tried. Guy had it sold in about 30 minutes from posting. Maybe this will get easier when i quit working swing shifts and am home at decent hours to make this **** happen.

$10 bucks is cheap here too, but I already have 4 projects going so I don't want to add to the fleet right now unless I'm getting a steal. PX10 sold a couple days ago for $100 bucks, another PX10 sold about 1 month ago for $80 here. Neither of the sellers knew what they had.

It was a Japanese Puch based on the "made for" on the headbadge. For $10 I'd buy it and put it away until I had time. When you take off the pedals and loosten and turn the bars you can fit a lot more projects in the garage. I was offered the same deal at $20 on a similar Puch. It is in my basement.
