Reminds me of my Araya I had, looked a lot like that but was in worse shape. I gave $20 just for the bar end shifters it had. I would guess this Ross to be $80 - $120? Depends on the tire condition.

A good flipper? Not in my mind, mostly because the market for such a big bike is small. That said, the bar end shifters, most likely Suntour, are worth the thirty bucks all by themselves. New tires on quick release hubs fitted to alloy rims, adds more value to the purchase. Yes, I would buy that bike in a heart beat for $30 but, for me, the value would be in the components just mentioned.

One other thing. Those clamp on side stands, as often as not, do damage to the chain stays, crushing them a bit or a lot, depending on how they were used and tightened.

Sorry if seems to be a bit negative. Buy the bike and offer it "as found" for more than you paid but be prepared to wait it out. Also, better pictures would be a great benefit when trying to find a buyer. Best of luck with your decision.
