Surprisingly less ugly than I anticipated. Seller doesn't understand significant figures, though.

I dunno its pretty freakin ugly with those leopard spots.

I think the drivetrain is interesting... Its like the seller was gonna do a SS/FG flip but cheaped out on the rear wheel and decided to leave the gear cluster on. I sorta like it....i'd be willing to bet that this is what happens to a majority of the SS/FG conversions in 2-3 years..they end up as 5-6 speeds.
