Maybe the best find so far: a 20 yr old "Electra 7 Speed Street Rod"; specs per BicycleBluBook:

Hubs: Front: Shimano Nexus Roller brake, Rear: Shimano Nexus Inter 7 Roller brake
Rims: EBC TA-5 aluminum, 36-hole
Tires: 700 x 38c EBC City Slicks
Spoke Brand: Stainless steel, 2.0mm straight gauge
Spoke Nipples: Brass nipples
Brakeset: Shimano Nexus Roller brake
Shift Levers: Grip Shift SRT-400
Crankset: Tracer, 38 teeth
Pedals: Wellgo resin/aluminum
Bottom Bracket: Cartridge
BB Shell Width: 68mm English
Rear Cogs: 7-speed internal, 18 teeth
Seatpost: Kalloy aluminum micro-adjust, 26.8mm diameter
Saddle: EBC Touring w/springs
Handlebar: EBC Euro-City aluminum
Handlebar Stem: Kalloy
Headset: 1inch threadless YST

...just got to see if frame can handle a 26x1.95 or 2.125 tire set.

and a lot under my $465 upper limit-


Caveat - 20 years old might need some maintenance and replacement parts (but I assume you're more than capable of handling that).
