Well it is a pretty sloppy SS conversion in rough shape. Looks to need a complete rebuild crank and wheelset to make it a nice SS/FG not just a light tune up. Despite the chrome lugs this is not a high end frame likely only high-ten. I would pass on this bike just doesn't make since considering what it would cost to sort out the poor SS conversion or make it back into a properly geared road bike.

For as pretty as those frames are, from what I understand, they are not worth much. That being said the saddle and the lock are worth something. If I was bored and looking for a project or if I needed those parts maybe $100.
