here is what it looks like! They are also not expensive (less than 30,000 pesos or like $2,500 USD)
I would definitely go with that over the Eliminator. More my style (a lot more retro) and it has cast wheels, which I assume means tubeless tires. I had to carry extra tubes, tire irons, tools to remove and install the wheels, a pump, and a small homemade jack around with me, which completely filled up my saddlebags.
I won't spend more on a bike than I think it's worth, but if it's a good deal, I don't seem to have a problem buying bikes I don't need.
