They are used quite a lot as rental bikes here in Spain.
Very reliable but parts can be pretty expensive when it comes time to replace/service them. And can look tatty/rusted/pitted if not cared for.
Not sure about price, but it seems very expensive to me at first glance. But maybe that’s cause of the very low mileage and condition.
As a first bike, I would not go for a bike in mint condition like the one in your link. But a cheaper one may be a good choice if that’s the style he’s looking for.
Just for comparisons sake; A Y2K bike in good condition with 30,000km will sell for around 2100 euros here in Spain (from a dealer). So may be found even cheaper privately. But obviously prices in the UK and Spain can differ dramatically...
