Schwinn Continental

Ok, so I was looking at this Schwinn Continental near by me and I'm wondering if i were to make an offer, how much is it worth? The seller said he'd do $55. He also sent me a ton of pictures.

From the pictures, it looks in pretty good condition beside some scratches on the top tube.

Front fork is BADLY damaged. Looks like it was intentionally turned into a "chopper" style. Otherwise, good looking bike from that era. I would pass.

Great smooth bike, very heavy, horrible fork.
Give him $25 and start looking for a fork.

Yeah, I didn't see the fork. Bummer. Thanks again everyone!

Btw, is there a way to delete my threads?
