Olmo from late 60s/early 70s

Hi all - Brand new to the forums and buying my first bike in over a decade. I can pick up a vintage Olmo (posted below) for $240 Canadian. Should I pull the trigger?

Thanks!

Base model material. Priced at two to three times market value.

Keep looking.

T.O. is one crazy hot market. While the Lark is not OEM, the correct Huret is easy to obtain. While there are some other condition issues, the major thing is that it still has the OEM aluminum chainguard, which should fetch around $100 CDN, possibly more, on its own. Pedals and saddle also have some value. I wouldn't be surprised if the seller gets the asking price or near to it.

I would say that this one will likely sell for the asking price. But if your looking for a bike to ride this one is not a great choice, some end heavy clunky steel components that don't work good and it needs some TLC more of a collectors bike than a basic rider.
