Depends. If it's an 8-speed rear and if those are Shimano trigger shifters and if they work OK, that's not a totally bad deal. If it's a 7-speed rear, no way.
Most bike flippers look for those nicer X-mart bikes that have been damaged at yard sales. But your point it correct, someone who flips bikes isn't going to pay $50. I picked up a Magna at a yard sale for $10, landed up trashing the frame, cranks and suspension fork. The rest went to various bikes as repair parts.
