Default Does this look like a good price?

I found ths in my area and I am thinking about buying it. It was originally purchased in 2007. I would like to convert it to a dual tap. A couple questions.

1. How many cornies do you think it will fit, I'm thinking 2 maybe 3 (tight)
2. Is the price good

I think it will hold two corney kegs, if the co2 tank is outside. They are about $500 new, I think.

Thanks, that's what I was thinking. I'm 90% sure the co2 is on the outside

The thing I was thinking about is that if it doesn't come with corney kegs, and you're adding another faucet to the tower, you may be spending another $150+ on this kegerator. (It's designed for commericial kegs and only one of them).

Since that's $350+, and it's small, you may want to go another route.

A small freezer at Home Depot, and a full 2 kegging set up might only run you $350.

My thought also was that it will need to be converted for cornies. The fittings in it are for a commercial keg.

A new 7 cubic ft. freezer that will hold 3-4 cornies costs $158 at Home depot.
And you can find them for a lot less on craigslist.
