Early 90s, made in Taiwan, has some decent parts on it. Conclusion = yes if it fits you.

Yeah, I'd pay $30 for it. I had one a while back, not my size but I flip a lot. I really liked the way it rode, and it seemed to be pretty well made.

I bought a bike like that some months ago for $60. In bad shape; tires flat, rust spots on frame, cables worn, FD trashed. I turned it into a project. Took a couple dozen photos as I disassembled it. Sent the frame off for new paint, then ordered up new cables, a new FD, new bearings, brake pads etc. While it was at the paint shop, I cleaned and inspected every remaining piece; crank, wheels, bars, shifters, derailleur.

It was a fun project, I learned a lot, and the bike has become a reliable and attractive "keeper" that draws admirers and comments at the local coffee shop.

Have fun with yours. DB
