I have a 1987 Prelude and really like it. It has the Shimano indexed shifters, so I can't comment on the shifting, but the bike in general is pretty nice. A 24 lb. bike was solid intermediate range in the late 80s. I think the $150-200 range is about right too (although I scored mine in a pawn shop for $50 last month).
