I would say $100 would be a good deal on this bike, and don't plan to flip it. First off, if it is actually only ten speeds, it is either older than mid nineties, or a very low end Uni. It has stem shifters, a chain guard on the crankset and the brake attachments that you can reach from the top bar (don't know what these are called, but I actually like them on a commuter). Because of all of these factors, it probably also has stamped dropouts. These things don't make it a bad bike, but a lower end, recreational consumer model. It is not one of the "Italivega" models made in Italy, but is rather an Asian model. Suntour components unfortunately doesn't tell us much as suntour made very low end as well as high end components. Find out the models of the derailleurs and search Velobase.com for info and reviews. This will also help you know what years the components were made and you can pinpoint the year of the bike more acurately. If it is in pristine condition, doesn't need tires, cables or a chain, I might pay upwards of $125 for a daily rider, but if you hold out you can find a much better deal for that price.
