Everything. One wheel is usually unusable, with hops. The bike will not be able to be test rode for one reason or another. He does not overhaul his bikes, he just tweaks them a bit and pushes them out the door. Even if you are lucky enough that it is in decent enough condition to ride, it will need a full overhaul.

I have only purchased two bikes from him, all I was after was the frames. Neither bike was in road worthy condition.
