Convince me to buy this Schwinn Suburban!



"5 Speed Schwinn Suburban. In nice shape. It may need new tires and possibly cables. The cables do work but are a little stiff."

Looks good, has some discoloration and rust but can be cleaned up. Fits my size.

Price? $20. Whoa.

Convince me. Should I go for it?

For 20$ buy it buy it now. I have sold several similar Schwinns in near scrap condition for 3 times this price recently.

At $20 you're too late, it's already gone. The next time a deal like that comes up, buy now, ask later. <g>

I agree at $20 buy then ask questions. I just picked up a 10 speed suburban sight unseen, only a rather poor picture on CL for $25. I sent my mother in-law to pick it up as it was in her town. If I don't keep it I should be able to flip it out for about $110 in my area.
