Check it out, price is decent if it is ready-to-ride.

It looks like a nice little bike. Within the ballpark of the value. And, probably a good size. Have you seen the bike? Ridden it yet?

For any bike that is 20+ years old, I'd prefer to spend some time regreasing everything, and tuning the bike. It also gives on an opportunity to get to know the ins and outs of the bike.
