Schwinn World Voyageur Questions

I have the possibility of buying a Voyageur, all original except for tires and tubes, for about $200. I've read a few other threads here and elsewhere, and this seems like a decent price and the bike itself is a great older model. From what the seller says, the bike is from the early 1970s and was hung up in the garage for almost that entire time until last year, when they bought it. The seller says it is beautiful and in great condition. Apparently, it has bar-end shifters, and chrome underneath the paint.

So, I got a few questions:

1. Is $200 a good deal?
2. Would this be a good all around commuting/touring bike? I plan to put fenders on it and a rack if it doesn't have one already.
3. Anything to watch out for? I'm going to take a look at the bike tonight.

Thanks!
