In my area, a 1990 Schwinn LeTour is a pretty nice commute bike for $150 asking 1990 Schwinn Le Tour Road Bike
In fact if I was looking for a short city commute bike I would buy it.
Really cheap I have seen basically new Pacific cycles on craigslist for $40. Not what I would buy, but they are cheap
edit - I would focus on late 1980 Japanese bikes for the best bank for the buck - $100 to $250 depending on condition - Centurion, Nishik, Miyata, Fugi, Shogun, Schwin, Univega. cromo frames, 700c aluminum rims/hubs, decent componatnts
