Good to know. I actually felt bad about giving the guy only $15.00. I figure any bike that's in ridable condition is worth at least $50, let along that it was a folder, and seems to have been around a while and held up pretty well, except for the rust.
Once I saw it, I had to ask again, "How much are you asking?" Just to make sure he didn't feel like he was getting ripped off. He said, "I'm asking $15, but I got this other bike frame and a couple of other parts I need to get rid of. If you can make all of that stuff disappear, I'll give it all to you $10."
So, yeah, assuming I can clean it up and fix it up, I think it's money well spent. I just need to convince my wife of that... Or hide it from her until it's done. Good thing it's little. I just need to find a home for the other, full-size bike frame that came with it.
