    What do you think about this bike on CL?

    Is it any good? Is it way too much? Remember, I live in NYC.

    IF it fits, I'd offer $100 max.

    And that's the MAX. I'd probably only go to 50.

    way too much, not fully functional
    Women's bikes are pretty common on NY CL. Be patient.

    It might have value as a "vintage" hipster type bike, the decals seem to be in good shape. It probably needs an overhaul ($100). Upgrading to a modern bottom bracket might be a problem due to "French" threads. If you really want a vintage bike that one looks nice, I suggest post on the vintage thread.

    If you are looking for general NYC transportation consider a folding bike.
    2000 Montague CX, I do not recommend it, but still ride it.
    Strida 3, I recommend it for rides < 10mi wo steep hills.
    2006 Rowbike 720 Sport, I recommend it as an exercise bike.
    1996 Birdy, Recommend.
    Wieleder CARiBIKE (folding), decent frame.
