3 for 1 SALE INCLUDED A TARANTULA FX2000 PROFRAME

I saw this on craigslist last week & when I saw it again yesterday I called the guy and went by them to see it. No one had come by the last week because of heavy storms we've been having & so I ended up with a good deal (I think) -
I got the Tarantula (I know it's rusty but it also seems pretty rare so I took a chance), a really light weight frame & a Made in England Raleigh 10 speed road bike for $100 total.
Does anyone know anything about the Tarantula? I've only found 1 reference - and it was for a Tarantula FX1000.
PS - I also like the weird shaped seat!

Looks to be fairly low end early 90's bike based on the welding and components. I would say it and the 10 speed are worth about what you paid maybe a bit less.
