It looks nice from the pictures. I think they are way off about the sizing, the frame looks small for someone 6 foot. It looks like it's around the same quality level as a Schwinn Suburban but slightly more interesting. Is that a 1 piece Ashtabula crank on a Japanese bike?

I am assuming it probably has a shimano 333 hub. I could be wrong, but if it does just be aware that they are not as easily rebuilt as a sturmey archer hub. I would normally argue that 150 is too high since it has not been serviced but Denver seems to be a inflated market. If it is in rough shape in person than I would not pay that much. On the other hand, if it's in immaculate shape then I wouldn't feel bad at that price.

Thanks much. Looks like today is the only day I can see it until after the 1st...and I can't. So I guess I"ll have some time to think about it.
