    Help me decide whether to buy a vintage Frejus track bike that I cant afford

    So, this dude posts on a local bike forum about a track frame for sale, no details, no pics, but I was curious, so I emailed him.

    He replies that it's a 70's Frejus that he's selling for his Dad, and he wants ~$300 for it, but seems to REALLY need to sell it, so I bet he'd bite for like $250. All I/he knows about the componentry is that the cranks are Japanese replacements because the originals broke. I can't see it in person unless he has his dad bring it to town, which he obviously doesn't want to do unless I'm "serious" about considering it.

    So basically what I want (or don't want) to know is whether this bike is too good a deal to let go, or whether I should just save my money for something else. I just spent a fair amount of money on parts for another bike which I should really be content with for a while, but it's a road conversion, and not an especially great frame to begin with.

    i'd buy it and ebay any parts you don't want/need. you can easily sell the frame for at least $250, regardless of what size/condition its in, as long as its not bent or dented. but if it fits, keep it!

    yeah as long as its not bent or rusting, you should be fine spending 250-300 on it.
