Late 80's Nishiki International

I'm looking for a decent bike for daily use.
I've found this for sale, the asking price is $100.
No details other than "12 Speed" and "Probably late 80's"
These are the only pictures available...

Appears to be later 80's. Depending on your area, $100 for that bike is a very reasonable price. Depends on how much work it will take to make it a dependable daily ride. hard to tell what condition the chain / tires /etc are in from those photos.

+1 Good price, particularly if it is ready to ride. If it is not ready to ride, and if you are not ready to do the work yourself, it could go from good deal to poor deal (depending on what needs to be fixed).
