Fair deal on Bianchi 1987?

Hi everyone I'm trying to find myself a decent used bike and I was wondering if anyone could let me know if they think the following is a good deal: http://www.usedottawa.com/classified-ad/9395311


I'm quite the noob so I don't have a clue, but 500 bucks seems high (in CDN$).

any help or info would be greatly appreciated.

thanks!

$500 is too high...even for Canadian Monopoly money, haha. That bike is worth $300 tops.

Thanks, 300 US would be 350 CDN . . . but given that the market is small here or at least I think it is I'm not sure what to offer. I guess I could see how far down he's willing to go.

Thanks for your help!
