I'm on my 2nd 2007 Langster. Got the other one today. I broke my frame in a crash and loved it so much that I got it again... just different color. The silver/white one looks way cooler than the "rust" one IMO. I put bullhorns on it and white handlebar wrap, it looks pretty badass. My purchase was at cost as well, I think it costs about $400 or so... pretty good deal.

Things I don't like about it:
The internal headset on it sucks.
The wheel set sucks. (Alexrims 500)
Brake levers are AWFUL! I put on some Tektro carbon triathalon style... much more gooder.
Original brake pads weren't the best.
Original pedals suck... broke them on day 3.
Original chain is cheap.

All in all, I've put about $200 after the fact... most by choice, some I broke. Mine weighs in at 18.5 lbs and rides super smooth. Just expect some upgrades right off the bat.

Edit: I forgot... you probably won't need to worry about the brakes... I'm just a big wuss.
