Yessir, I'd do that.

It'll probably need some elbow grease, but if you get it running, you have a nice bike, dirt cheap.

If not, the parts should easily make back more than you spent.

^ Already reported. I actually had a toasted spam sandwich when I got from work yesterday. I put american cheese and wobers creamy horseradish spread on it and it was actually quite delicious.

Anyway, the above listing has expired so I assume he sold it. Anyone here get it?
