I have a Fuji Monterey and I like it a lot. It's sort of low-end, but rides very nicely. The bike pictured is most likely worth $60 bucks, in better shape it would go for around 100.00 around my way, more in a bike-friendly city like Chicago or Portland. Mine has an aluminum crankset, but that one looks like it's steel which will work fine, but be a tad heavyer. New cables can be had for 5 bucks a set at wallyworld, new tires are not too much more and you've got a great riding cheap bike. So, In short, yes, buy it and fix it up if you want it to ride, if you're looking for easy 'flip' money then it won't pay as much(entry-level bike) but you still could make 20+ bucks on it depending on what it needs.
