Late 90's GT Palomar - worth it?
Figured I would ask here too since I didn't get any responses in the C&V arena.
So saw an ad for a late 90's GT Palomar. Looks to be in solid condition and would fit me (potentially). I recently converted my early 90's Trek 800 Antelope to a drop bar, tweaked out tank. Now I am hankering for something else to tinker with come summer. Possibly convert to 27" rims (because that is what I have off my old Schwinn) and make a drop bar CX bike or just leave it alone.
Anyone have any experience with these? It looks to be in decent shape; rusty chain and cassette, but the frame looks pretty solid in the pictures. Plus I like the way the seat tube, chain stays, and top bar intersect.
Anything I should look out for or be wary of?
The guy is asking $55 for it. And anyone know where to look up a serial number?
Here is a picture of said bike:
