Are you looking for a low end/bottom end bike project? If so, this one appears to be close to appropriate price for a keeper. Too high priced for a flipper. Terrible pictures, if the guy is close, you might go look at it.

yeah i didn't know if it was pretty crappy or not. as fro theprice i think it is high but if it was a decent enough bike i would have talked him down.

though in retrospect it does look kinda crappy.
and im to lazy to go look at it.
