Vintage Schwinn Racing bike

I admit I'm smitten with how this Vintage Schwinn looks. They buyer is asking 280.

http://orangecounty.craigslist.org/bik/2607083346.html

I'm just looking for a road bike to commute with around town, one that is preferably mostly original. I'm looking to pay under 250. And though I've been snooping around these forums...I'm not knowledgeable enough to tell whether this is a ripoff or not.

Is that a Sports Tourer?

You can read about the fillet brazed Schwinn's here.

It doesn't look like it's gotten any recent maintenance, so it seems at least somewhat high to me, as I'm not really sure how uncommon or sought after these are.

Thanks for the information and link. I did some more snooping and also saw this thread on here: http://www.bikeforums.net/archive/in.../t-146612.html. It's not $415, but I suspect it's still a tad high though I'm sure prices on bikes are inflated in the southern california market.
