Potential Bargin or not?

I spotted this Jake the Snake on ebay and was wondering if anyone had any opinions if it looked like a decent bargain or not. The asking price is less than half of the full retail price over here. I'd love to own a Jake and would love to own one even more if i had some spare cash afterward!

450 or 550 but it now? If you could get it for 450 that would be great.

Thanks Zeltar, that's a great looking bike but a 58cm frame i am certain would be too big for me (5ft 9 31.5-32in inside leg).
You don't happen to know what frame size the Jake the Snake i posted would be do you?
Is says 54cm Centre of Bottom Bracket to Center of Top Tube and 56cm Top Tube Length. It just seems like a very long top tube and i think it would likely be too big for me aswell. If you or anyone has any feedback it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks again

58cm would be way too big for you.

As I posted in your other thread, a 56cm is not an excessive top tube for this bike. A 54 C-C measurement equates to a 56cm frame measured C-T. Check www.konaworld.com for geometry of a 56cm bike (which has a 56cm top tube).
