1987 Bridgestone Mile 112

Hey there, gents!

I posted this in the "Are you looking....?" thread, but the longer it sits the more I think I oughta just plunk down $100 myself. I'd be buying it specifically to clean, tune, and flip during the PDX springtime; according to the ad the tires were replaced last summer so I wouldn't have to worry about that, plus it's a buyer-friendly size. Saddle is clearly not original, but I've got a white one I can put on there. I'm thinking that it could bring $250-300 all cleaned up and with good presentation. Am I pretty close? Thanks!

I think $275-300 is about right nicely cleaned up with matching bartape saddle and maybe nicer pedals with clips.
