Bridgestone 400 value

I ran across a very clean Bridgestone 400 at the bike recycler. They plan on cleaning it up and selling it to finance their operation. It looks like this: http://www.sheldonbrown.com/bridgest...ne-400psd.html

I am thinking of making an offer on this bike. What would be a fair price?

Need a pic of the real bike, rather than a catalog page, as it is all about condition. It could be worth $25, it could be worth $200 (perfect, ready to ride, in a hot market), and everything in between.

+1 To below: It is not one of those highly sought after Bridgestone models (low number MBs and low number RBs). But Bridgestones have a following.

If it's in pretty good shape I would say anywhere between $100-$125 in my market. Maybe a bit less. The hot Bridgestones price-wise are the MB's, RB's and XO's.

I'll try to get one. It looked to be in very good condition, though. They are going to go through it to get it ready for sale.
