Thinking a bout buying this https://newyork.craigslist.org/que/bik/3285845363.html.

Is $200 a fair price?


Thanks

Welcome to bikeforums.

Considering your location and the condition of the bicycle, that's probable a fair price. The problem with an original 40 year old bike is 40 year old tires, grease and brake cables. The tires and cables may look okay, but I wouldn't trust them. Grease dries out over the years. If the bearings aren't serviced the bearing surfaces could be damaged.

If you have to pay a shop to do the work it will be expensive. You could easily have more invested then the bike is worth.
