I sold this 24 inch 1983 Trek 620 earlier this year without a ding for $375. Included original rear rack, matching bottle holder, original brake levers, original wheelset, original pedals and toe clips, and original crankset. Everything is original other than the brake lever hoods and the seat. Tires were original too, I bet the bike had 100 miles on it or less.
At the time, I thought the price was realistic based on the really sweet deal I got on the bike on ebay for a lot less ( two weeks earlier).
I sold it too cheap, it went super fast. I probably sold mine for $100 under market. Lesson learned. But I think your price is too high, your price would be OK for a spotless, all original version.
FWIW: Your bike looks like a 24 inch frame (61 cm). Next size up was 25 1/2 inch (65 cm). A 25 1/2 inch frame would be worth less (hard to sell the really big sizes). I have not had any problems finding buyers at the 24 inch size.
Just one person's opinion.
