1982 Zinn

Hello all you cool cats!

I spotted this Zinn on CL and would like some thoughts on what people think. It does say it was in a minor crash but was aligned.

The tubeset decal appears to be SLX and that a 1990s 600 Ultegra group. At that price, I'd be all over this, if it weren't for the 0.5mm ripple, which makes it a craps shoot. It might be OK forever, or it might fold on the next big bump. Typically, it's OK to straighten a bent frame and ride it, providing there is no distortion in the metal after the alignment but evidence of a crease or ripple after alignment makes it suspect. At least the seller is honest and has declared it, though in such a case, I would have expected a good photo of it.

Don't think I'd worry about a 0.5 mm crease as long as the bike rides straight.

The CL ad is gone, what was the asking price of the bike out of interest sake?
