$25 as it sits.

considering buying it and putting a better fork on it and polishing the frame. Ive wanted a nice triple tri frame like a xizang or a zaskar but I cant find any, so maybe this'll do. considering suspension fork with disc brake on the front and a single free cog in the back, gear yet to be chosen.

?

its a tempest. seems from reviews like it was a mid range thing.

I believe that might be the pre-Pacific GT. If so, then go for it.
