Are you at least 5'10" to ride that bike comfortably?

Looks nice ! I don't know who made the frame but it appears to have a 600 drive train and updated bars and dual pivot brakes. Hit the Buy it Now button.

Definately worth the money, especially if you want to go the parts/flip route. That's a big frame, hope you are 6' if you want to keep it for personal use.

That's a smoking hot deal (let's hope the bicycle isn't hot)! The frame appears to be a very late 1980s Performance Corsa. They sold these as bare frames for about $495US and built to customer order. They were made in Japan using A5056 TD-H38 aluminum. The lugs are bonded and riveted (for a little extra insurance). It's a frankenbike build but the derailleurs do appear to be 1990's Shimano 105SC and possibly the brakes too. That certainly is one jerry rigged stem extension.
