This is basically what I was thinking; any bike that you can get for $50 and give you rides for awhile is worth it. You will be spending more on maintenance as pointed out above. I would spend more...

As far as I'm concerned that looks like a really nice bike for $50. Good luck finding something nicer at that price point. Realize of course that it's going to need another $50 to get on the road...

I would say it's for someone more like 5'6" or so, depending on leg length, etc. This MODEL would be great, but you'll probably want a 23-in or so.

I think this one is a 21-in frame, which will be on the small side for you. I'm 5'9" and usually ride 23-in, or 58-60 cm frames, depending on angles and design. Then again, I like the old French...

The saddle is as low as it can go, which suggests that the bike might be at the upper limit of the acceptable size range for the current owner. (Or maybe the owner just likes a low saddle position...

You’ll have to see it. For reference I recently rebuilt a 1985 road bike that was in good condition. I spent $190 on tires, new chain, new handlebar tape and hoods, brake cable and shift cable,...
