1983 Trek 720 with rust

So I'm going to look at this in a few hours with no real prior knowledge of how to value a used classic. I've been on the hunt for a lugged steel frame that I can commute on in the next 3 months and then build into a long-distance setup to hopefully get into randonneuring. Storage would be inside both at home and work, but commute riding may well be in adverse weather in the short term.

The DC market is more than a little inflated, but that's where I'm stuck for the next 60-180 days on evacuation from my overseas posting. So it is what it is.

Presuming fit works out, this would be a lifer purchase.

So what is reasonable $? My total buy intention had been $350-400 with new consummables but I realize the 720 is a bit of a grail find and am willing to stretch my total cost a bit.
