What do you guys think?
My girlfriend needs a full sized commuter/road bike (we've been riding folders for a year and think it's time to upgrade). Assuming this one passes my full inspection (check the frames for cracks, wheels for true-ness, general wear and tear, etc.), does this look like a fair price?
And any guesses on the year/model?
We're heading over tonight to take a look.

That is a super cool mixte.
$200 is fair if everything is in working order. I'd try to talk them down anyway.

Front fork looks bent. Is that some paint chipping on the downtube a few inches back from the headtube? Anyway, you said you'd check it out so I'm certain you'll catch any damage. Not a Bianchi expert but I'd try to get it down a bit. What part of downtown LA? Watch your back, park in a safe place after dark.

Thanks, Puget Pounder and retyred! Sounds like $200 is in the ballpark assuming everything is working well (and, as always, try to talk down). I noticed those couple of scuffs, but hopefully they're no big deal and there's nothing else when I view it in person.
It's near LA Live, and I'm plenty familiar with downtown LA, so I'll stay safe. Thanks again!

For LA that is a good deal, anything that works is 100$ and adding an Italian name makes it priceless.

Eh, thanks for the opinions folks. The bike looked good, but the fit wasn't quite right and the girlfriend didn't like it.
