    It's only worth what someone is willing to pay. Is he looking for a vintage bike with character, or a daily rider?

    Daily rider. The guy is a horse. Hard on parts.

    I live in downtown Baltimore. The friend in question lives in Ellicott City and likes hills.

    Yeah, that looks more appropriate to a flyweight vintage weenie.

    I'd go about 1 mile on that thing before it became a unicycle.

    Probably less than those steel skewers.

    I wouldn't buy it. Is it worth the price is all relative but for the most part its in the ballpark of where it should be. Would probably sell on ebay between $500-$800 i would think. TT bikes are meant just for that, time trials. Not comfortable or practical as a daily bike or for much else in my opinion.
