Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

That is a conversion. Looks to be a low-end steel frame. For $200, you are not going to get much more than that. If you can get it for $160, it might be worth it as you can swap the parts onto a real track frame one day.
