Yep. And under valued perhaps. I had 2 Atlantas, both '98 or so. I got the first frame cheap and found another in better condition. I liked the first one better so I sold the second one. I think the OP got everything but the frame for free at $300.

My Atlanta gets the most saddle time. For me it is stiff enough, must be the big tapered tubes at the bottom bracket and has that intangible quality that makes a steel bike just feel right. I have an Ultegra 6700 group on it with Ultegra hubs/Open pro rims. It's not light but floats along just fine.

If you can ride it comfortably I say have fun and tear it up. The lugs are pretty nice too!!
