Schwinn Continental 1972

I'm looking to buy a bike, and i was wondering is this Schwinn Continental 1972 worth the price?
In the ad it mentions that its Professionally tuned up, also has new tires and new chain...

You mean this one?: https://atlanta.craigslist.org/atl/bik/3134836938.html



That's a 24" (medium size) frame Continental in pretty good condition and all original, but that price is way too high for a Continental. They normally sell in the $100 to $150 range in that condition. A price that high would be reserved for a Super Sport or Sports Tourer.

$300 is really outrageous in any market. Atlanta, its totally wacky.

For a Schwinn Continental in the south this price is way to high. I would say only about $100 maybe $150 if everything is pefect recently serviced with new tires and cables.
