$280 Includes a saddle bag, tail light, head light, and a u-lock. He claims he paid 500$ all together a few months ago for it.
It would appear
that a new Beatnik retails for $339, so you're getting a $59 price break. As for the "paid $500" part, it all depends on how much he paid for those other items, I guess -- or how much you would normally pay if you picked out your own. but if you genuinely would need to make all those purchases separately, then it sounds like you're getting a price break there too.
