I'll give you a 100.00 for it.. Yes it's a great deal unless the frame has severe dents or is not rideable..

Nice find. That would have been worth it for the frame alone.

Looks good on paper; there might be a reason for why it's priced so low. For example, I've been in cases where I saw an ad for a bike/components at a very low price, and the seller has gotten a ton of calls about it. Well, I show up in person, and the bike/parts look pretty beat, so what was a "good deal" price is now overpriced.

If it's an original Turbo saddle in decent shape then it's probably worth the $50 alone. Nice score!
