Sorry Jack, I would not go that high. This bike is at the bottom of the Schwinn food chain. That particular bike is going to need the following: New chain (it doesn't have one), new tires, new brake pads. You're at about $50 plus whatever the LBS wants for labor if you can't do it yourself. And, I haven't gotten into things like lubrication for the bottom bracket and hubs, what about cables and so on. If I find a bike like that at a yard sale, I won't go above $20. Keep in mind, I do all my own work so I don't have to pay LBS labor.
My max offer for that bike would be $20.
