I don't know much about Velosports, but probably a nice Tange frame. Seems like a nice bike, very worthy of the asking price.

Buy it. Plan to replace the 28 year old tires and tubes.

Think about what $150 Canadian will get you at a bike shop.

Looks nice.
If you're buying this to ride, is the size right for you?

I hope the vendor was not selling you this particular bike because this is a picture of my bike and I still have it.

It looks like the bike (or some bike anyway) was purchased 6 months ago.
