89 Chicago Schwinn Tempo

Advertised as 1989 Chicago Schwinn Tempo with Shimano 105 components. Said to have been ridden very little, hung in garage most of its life. Priced at $288, which means $250 would buy it. Does this sound reasonable?

Or you could see if you can get this same-sized (21") 1987 Tempo for $200 :] Both look like they need new consumables (tire sidewalls look dry). Both may need new pedals (the triangular pedals on the 87 will be unpleasant to ride without the missing toeclips, and the 89 has clipless pedals you'll need special shoes for). And it's a good idea to get new grease in all the bearings. Good luck!

The 89 for posterity:

Its not a Chicago Tempo. Chicago plant closed in 1982. Schwinn kept a headquarters in Chicago so they continued to put Chicago on their bikes long after Chicago plant closed.
