Is this bike worth anything?

I want to get a fixed gear ride with pursuit geometry and was thinking about making this into a fixed gear conversion...

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=280538321269

but I dont know if its worth it.. or if I should just try to find a fixed gear at a similar price with similar pursuit geometry? What do you think?

vertical dropouts. no good for a fixed conversion. if you couldn't see that immediately, you may want to rethink your choice of bikeódo you want "pursuit geometry" because it's cool or because that's the kind of riding you're doing?
