Tunturi 500 - familiar with this brand?

I have a chance to pick up a nice shape Tunturi 500 10 speed for cheap but have never heard of them and my searching (here and google) turned up very little. Tunturi makes exercise equipment and it looks like they still sell a few bikes in Europe. Wiki

It has Sun Tour derailleurs..aside from that I don't really know anything else about the bike.

I know that it isn't anything special but does anybody have any idea if the bike is any good at all or is it just a hi-ten department store bike with a weird name?

I had one for a brief moment last year. It was a quick flip. It was decent enough quality, lower than say a Schwinn World Sport, but good enough as a commuter/run around sort of bike. What is the asking price for the bike?

Asking $50 obo. I could probably pick it up for 30 or so. It looks to be my size but I would only keep it if it was nicer than my Fuji Del Rey or Univega Supra Sport. Otherwise it would probably get cleaned up and sold in the spring.

If one came up here for $30 or so I would pick it up.
