Yeah, not classic or vintage.. But no one seems to follow that.

If you found it on bikepedia at $1800 it's a no-brainer at $120 assuming nothing is wrong seriously with it. The market for dirt jumpers seems soft around here, but even if you mark it at $300 and take the first offer of $250 you are still making some easy money.

For $120, you know something is wrong with it. Find out what it is, before you jump in. You know the old saying, if it looks to good to be true, it probably is.
