...Atala is (was ?) a huge bike maker, so made a crappe tonne of models/quality ranges. Need better pictures. Chromed fork and chainstay is encouraging. Saddle and components are not so much.

I think you're probably close in value. If you like the bike, and it fits. It is a pretty small frame.

Do you have the wheel size? Tire size? I'm guessing a fairly small tire. 700c X 25????

One of the details that would indicate at least a moderate level frame is the rear derailleur hanger, and the two dropout adjustment screws.

Can the seller tell you the last time it has had the hubs, bottom bracket, and headset overhauled?

I'm not sure what you mean by garish

That fade is typically late 80s/early 90s. Can't tell who made the RD, but it could be one of those rebranded deals. No braze ons for fenders or racks, a moderately small cassette, chromed seat stay, looks encouraging. Pricing well, that is very dependant on where you are, it would sell at that price here in Toronto, but we are a pricey market.

It is a seriously small bike, are you sure it would fit?

I agree the saddle doesn't look like it matches, toss it.

You can mount a rack with these + P-Clips.

They are easy enough to replace (upgrade?), but would be another expense.
I run pretty tight gearing, but it isn't for everyone.

I wasn't suggesting the lack of dropouts was a bad thing, it usually indicates a racing as opposed to a touring frame. Same with the tight geared cassette.
