No, the original would have been a Simplex LJ A200 Criterium, like this one. However, that is a nice upgrade for the plastic-based original version which usually cracks. The Super LJ is a pricey replacement = good selling point for higher sale value.

I have had an offer of $350 on the bike but the buyer has not seen it yet . She does not sound like a collector, just someone who wants a nice bike to ride. I'm not sure how much she cares about the non original parts.
I'd take the offer since you haven't put much into the bike.
