I would recommend you pass on this one. It just isn't worth putting any money or effort into.Thank you for responding. The owner did tell me that the front wheel had been replaced. He was asking $30 for it. I was thinking about purchasing it and restoring it. I will be honest and say that I don't know much about dealing with bikes or even if it would be worth restoring.
Thank you for the response.I would recommend you pass on this one. It just isn't worth putting any money or effort into.
Since you said you don't know much about dealing with bikes, what I would recommend is that you hang around for a while, do some reading on this site which is packed with information, get yourself at least somewhat familiarized with vintage bikes before you jump right in to a project. It'll likely save you time, frustration, and money in the long run.
Thank you for the response.+1 for what Jay81 says, BUT $30 is not a bad price for a bike on which you can learn a bunch of stuff. Tearing it down to the basic parts would be a exercise in figuring out how it all goes together plus you'll not spend a lot of money learning about some of the frusrations that accompany the rewards. You'll learn that everything on the left side of the crank has left hand threads. Learn how to disassemnle the front hub and clean and re-grease the bearings. Learn how to disassemnle, clean, and put the coaster brake back together. You might discover you have to buy specialty tools that you really don't want or want to spend money on. Lots of things to learn and this would be a cheap way to learn.
