I appreciate any insight on this as my budget is small for this project.
?? what do you mean no shifters or derailleurs?
I know I am a bit late but that is either an '88 or '89 depending on the shipmano group and it does not have Columbus tubing it was built in the orient.
The MSRP was around $475 so unless it is pristine 350 is too high

Plus, its likely an illusion, but the fork just above the chrome looks to be slightly bent.
