Schwinn Suburban-- Should I buy it?

Looking at buying this bike: http://providence.craigslist.org/bik/2994612194.html for $65.

I am mostly buying it just to go on occasional rides on the bike path this summer, maybe a little bit of commuting and rides around town but nothing too intense. Probably wouldn't be going more than 10-15 miles round trip ever, with most trips considerably shorter than that.

I'm trying to keep the budget for buying a bike under $100 and preferably closer to $50 as it's very possible I'll be moving in the fall and I don't know whether I'll be able to take it with me. So most of my other options in that price range are second hand department store mountain bikes.... this seems like a better deal than that-- am I right?

The retro thing isn't particularly important to me-- it's fine, but it's not a big factor.
