Too much, maybe half of that if it's in great condition.

I don't think it's "lower end" - I think it's a very solid mid-level bike with a dbl butted Chromo frame, stainless spokes and alloy rims.

Not worth $300 though. IMO, it would be closer to $200, if it's in good shape.
(Someone has one for sale in Indianapolis for $100, but I can't vouch for the condition.)

I have one but mine has DT shifters. It's a very nice bike and rides very well. My bike weighs 25 lbs. I would offer somewhere between 200-250 dollars. $150 would low balling and the seller won't go for that.
I'm just south of you, down in Firestone, BTW.
