Can anyone tell me what I should look for and if I should just walk away? The price is right!

Thanks a bunch! I bought one of the first VRods in the state way back when and am excited to get back into one.

Look at the stub the footpeg is mounted to, as in folded back. These tend to bend unless it has a crash bar. There are replacement down tubes or if not bad it can be straightened and rewelded if needed. New tube is $300 plus.
