Hi Wats0230-
If that's what I think it is (a Road Ace RX5) then it's an outstanding price for a bike with an extremely well crafted Tange Cromoly frame, Araya wheels, and SR crank. Go check it out, and while you are there, ask the seller if he has the Selle Italia saddle that came with it.

Oops! Sorry about that wats0230 -
- But good deals don't last long enough to ask "is this a good deal?"

If you are intent on scooping a vintage bike at a great price, just hang around the main C&V forum and read as much as you can - you'll soon recognize the best deals at a glance.

Yeah I know the good deals go so fast! I figured it was a good deal because it was so cheap and I emailed the guy 20 minutes after he posted it to go see it, but it was already gone. Oh well!
