Pink Miele chromed fork - worth it ?

I'm looking at this bike right now, asking 375 but could get it around 300$
Is it worth it ? Thanks !!

I have one exactly like that and believe that at $300 , you would be getting a great bike at a fair price . Keep in mind that you may need to service it , or pay someone to do it.

Yup, the price seems about right to me, for the Montreal market.

Based on past threads, the OP appears to be a flipper. If so, pass.
