Wheel opinion

Hey all!

I'm looking around for a new front wheel for a SS conversion. While I stand by the maxim If it looks too good to be true...it likely is what do you think of this one:

Yep

It's a converted GT from the 80's, works very well for my urban riding and I picked it up for $20. I'm using 1 1/2" slicks etc. I have a somewhat funky front wheel that I'd like to replace.
