The early 90s 820 through 9XX are fine rides. Usually 48/38/28 chrainrings and 12-28 cassette. Closer to touring gears than road or mtn. I put 26X1.5 Kenda Quest 100lb pressure tires and it rolls nicely on the pavement, but will still do the gravel/dirt roads in the neighborhood. My old 820 still has the original 1992 200GS shifters and they work flawlessly. This was a low end bike, but it sure has lasted well with many maybe 15,000 miles on it!
If it shifts well, isn't rusty and fits you well I would recommend it.
