If you plan to ride the bike extensively just watch out for that plastic Simplex rear derailleur. check for any cracking on the pivot bodies and repalce it if you see any as it's a sign that the plastic has perished and cannot be trusted to last too much longer. Many other all metal Simplex rear derailleurs out there to choose from to replace that one. Also check out if you have one of those so called "death stems" (I think it was the "PIVO" brand that had the problems) on the bike that also cracked on some owners.
