By the way, the Alfas aren't mine. Thanks for the comments!
Have you been watching ebay for prices? POS rust bucket /2s are going for 4.5k This is a good deal if that is the bike. That bike is a day of white diamond, steel wool, and wax away from being a really nice rider.
If I didn't have 3 /2s and a /3 i would be trying to get it if you didn't.
