This is for sale locally as part of a 4 bike lot for $300. Worth making an offer on this? What would be a good price point?

Checked it out. In much rougher shape than pics show. Looks like a repaint. Pass.

Really? is the paint scratched up in the areas not pictured? Is there cancer bubbles? It looks like it just needs wiped down and polish.

I'm not seeing anything extremely special, but that's not a bad bike. If they'll part out the lot offer $100!

When I see a bike I'm not in love with, suddenly all of the negatives multiply. It is easier to overlook blemishes if you've been wanting the bike for awhile and now have an opportunity. So perhaps this person looked at the bike and just wasn't feeling it.

Oh, closer looking at the pictures. It looks to have been rattle canned and touched up or something.
