Is this a good deal?

A kid on my street is selling an old fixed gear bike of his (hes almost done putting it together). It was a converted old road bike. It's been spray can painted matte grey. It has a riser bars, aeromax wheels, and mountain bike ourys, everything else is from the original bike (i think). The kid, I believe, steals bikes, so I am not sure if the original bike was stolen or not.

The wheels look like this:

The stickers were removed from the wheels.

He's trying to get it sold for 200.


Deal/no deal?

edit: Sorry if I posted this in the wrong section. If so, please tell me where to put it next time so I dont make the same mistake.

No deal. Especially if it's stolen.

Buying a stolen bike only encourages more bike theft. And trust me, it doesn't feel good to lose a bike so someone else can make money off of it.
