Maybe he hasn't stolen it yet, and wants to find out more about it, first. Don't wanna go stealing junk.

Brake levers so far down you'd slide off of the hoods on the first bump?? I guess you have to look at it closer.,,,,BD

And if you want to get more picky?? Stem height, saddle angle, etc...

You'd be surprised. I couldnt tell you how many bikes I've bought from legitimate sources that the sellers knew nothing about. I've bought bikes that given to sons/daughters from parents who cant ride anymore, bikes that were bartered for services etc. The list of reasons is long.

I'll bet you that the Commander's handlebars have been rotated back from full "Bum Bar" position.

BTW, who made a Commander?

I'm pretty sure it's fake too. Those lugs are either Spanish or Russian before Italian (except for Torpado). So... who knows.
