All things considered, I'd say about $150 is fair price.

If you do go to see it, doublecheck the stem. It's almost certainly well beyond it's safe insertion limit.
Thanks for the advise T-Mar - I'll probably pass on this one and keep looking for the time being.

Just curious (as I am a bike newbie), when you say insertion limit, it means how high the stem can be raised right? I could always lower it a bit and it would be safe right?

Thanks for your advise.
