Is this 70's nishiki pro worth the asking price? Seller want 215 for it. A rider, not a flip. Thanks guys and gals.

Its a deal, assuming no significant frame damage. Buy it before it is gone.

Well-the hideous seat had to go. Here are a bunch of pics...(did I do alright?)

The frame # is KD22355 (code of 74) and the crank (mighty competition code) is 72.
Brakes are obviously not orig, nor is the rdr or wheels. Insanely light! It was advertised as a 29 s.o.; but turns out to be 30.5" Can still ride it/need a shorter stem tho.
