I'm on the verge of purchasing a light touring bike/commuter and having lost an ebay auction on a Thorn bicycle I've since been offered the bike on a second change offer. This is the bike that I bid up to £420 for:

In terms of quality and value for money, which bike should I go for? Will the Thorn represent good value for money even though it has some older components like bar end shifters?
Cheers in advance
