I hope everything turns out well but I have a real problem in this day and age with folks listing a bunch of items with pictures pirated from other WWW sites. A basic digital camera doesn't cost that much. A picture is still no guarantee, but a "loving hands at home" version taken against some Gawdawful shag-carpet background, even if a little blurry, makes me think at least there's a good chance the seller has the item in his possession.
If one is going to using other photos, one should state in the auction that the accompanying photo isn't representative of the item up for auction. It's dishonest to do otherwise. Steven confirms what my still-learning eyes thought. The rear hub looks to be at least able to accommodate a 5sp freewheel, and isn't a single speed.
I apologize if the seller is a list member and takes offense, but this seller puts quite a few items up frequently and has a rather long list now. Some of those profits should go for a camera, I think.
