    Huh?
    It says 6 days and no bids.

    Also, that bike is ridiculous looking.

    Haha, that's better.
    Yeah, $225 seems like a pretty good deal.

    Good buy, I say.

    good deal. no matter what is really on it, buying a complete track frame for 225 is a deal.

    Looks like a nice setup, but the gearing is low for my taste. I'd swap that 39 for a 42 or even bigger unless you've got a lot of hills around.

    yeah; it's a converted Peugeot 10 or 12 speed road bike. I have a frame that looks exactly like that (based on the proportions, brake bridge, and the shape and placement of the cable guides). A pretty decent frame for a conversion from what I have seen.

    yeah, I'm tired right now. I started typing that up but then started searching ebay for track frames. So, that phrase was in my head when I meant to say "complete bike".

    Haha, I know people who live in the general vicinity of that trike.

    I am considering buying it and paying the guy to drop it in their front lawn.

    Good score on the Peugeot! Many more dollars would have been spend on those upgrades. Best parts are probably 1. rear wheel / cog 2. crank (though by no means "high end", you lucked out and got something intended for fixed / ss and in 165, nice for conversions) and 3. Turbo saddle...those rock.

    i am aware that track bikes sometimes have lines and holes, thank you. but i personally have never heard of a track bike with horizontal drop outs. maybe you need to go to bicycle whatever number thing.

    i am happy with my purchase.

    or fender holes....or derailleur holes....or a derailleur cable guide....

    Anyway, even if the frame were made of excrement this would be a good value in parts. (which it's not, it's a high quality frame).
