I like the looks and the price! I'm also far from one of those members able to look at pics like the ad and point out the potential problems where this pictured widget and that gadget aren't actually compatible.
It might be good to have your LBS do a safety check before you get into traffic with it, but that goes for any used bike. Good looking ride!
Also, there's not a darned thing wrong with more than 1 bike. Cruiser for cruising, something else for high-speed, off-road, long-distance, whatever you're after
Best of luck, and please let us know how you end up going!
