Actually quite common by me, but vary widely in quality of work performed. No offense to anyone here that refurbs and flips the right way, but I've seen so many "completely refurbished" bikes that had literally the bare minimum amount of work put into them to make them appear to work to a buyer. One was so bad that the rear brake cable housing was rusted right through in an inconspicuous spot that a less scrupulous buyer may have overlooked
