Good Deal on Jamis Beatnik?

Hi everybody, first off I do want to apologize if I am posting in the wrong section. I have not had a bicycle in quite sometime, yet I have always respected cyclist (my license plate says share the road! lol) and I want to reunite my legs with some wheels. Here is a bike I found fairly close to me, and I was hoping I could get some opinions on if its a good deal.

$280 Includes a saddle bag, tail light, head light, and a u-lock. He claims he paid 500$ all together a few months ago for it.

Thank you,

Thank you,
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.

Thank you Ganchan, going to see if I can talk him down 50$ and go from there.
