It appears to be a 1980 U-08, nothing special, like Tmar says, low-end and about 30lbs. You should be able to find something lighter for the money. The frame has French threading on the bottom bracket and headset. The rear derailleur is likely a heavy claw-type Simplex, as is the front derailleur. Unless you like spending big bucks on rare parts, I'd pass and look for something like a Schwinn World Sport, 25lbs, Japanese parts, easier to work on, etc.
