Zebrakenko Lightening

I posted this in the CL thread in C&V but, then I started thinking about it more. Is it worth going to look at? Thanks https://reading.craigslist.org/bik/1853827066.html

Rare Zebrakenko Lighting road bike, unique crank and suntour components. Found in my moms attic, missing front wheel and seat, and rear wheel has a wobble. Good for parts or restore.

I like projects. Any thoughts to frame material? I mean besides steel.... Too bad the seat and front wheel are missing

No idea, but the crank, bb, and derailleurs alone should cover the cost. Given those are pretty good components, I would expect the frame to be pretty decent too.
