Good buy?

Hello! I am new to mountain biking and I saw this guy selling this bike on Ebay or $265..the only thing he really knows is that it is a customized GT.

Please let me know your thoughts on the pictures attached!

If i could get the price down to $125 would it be worth it?

Thank you!

Michael

it's an RTS, from the '94/95 era, it looks to have been far to big for the previous owner from the seatpost setup, needs quite a lot of work, headset, front brake, handlebar/grip setup, the saddle has a rip. It has a dent visible, and the shifters/brakes are mis-matched. Bearing are in unknown condition, are spares available, can the Noleen be serviced. The forks are SR Suntour's which are disposables, are they any good.

For the price, would be surprised if you can get a best offer accepted of less than 50% of the original asking price on eBay, 10-20% would be more realistic. For worth it, if you know what you are doing, and really want it, it's a pretty ancient design of FS bike.
