Classic and Vintage Bicycles: What's it Worth? Appraisals and Inquiries - Schwinn Traveler (early 90s?) for $100? link included
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
Anybody know if this is a decent bike? The bike looks good, and the suntour components from my limited knowledge seem to be good...
The poster seems to think this is an early 90s? I would have guessed late 80's...
Thoughts? Should I bite?

$100 is fair depending on your intentions. If your the end user then, by all means, pick it up for $100. If your looking to flip/sell I'd pass.
In the Tampa market, during the season, that would be a $150 bike at most.
Rule 1: If it doesnt fit.....dont buy it.

Based on the color I believe it is a 1987. Schwinn calls the color Winter Mint, the rest of the bicycle world calls it Bianchi Celeste.

I'd day that's a good deal anywhere in the country>
1. As a keeper, good deal.
+1 Miamijim: As a flipper, not enough margin to cover unknowns. Would sell around here in ready to ride condition for $125 to $150 max, assuming new tires, cables, bearings, and alloy rims.
+1 If it fits and will be your bike, by all means!
Suntour components is kind of meaningless. Like Shimano, there are a lot of grades of Suntour components, from low end to very high end. But even low end Suntour components are fine at this price point.
Thanks everyone! I'll check it out to see if it fits...
