Raleigh Model 575 Super Lite Marathon Ladies Bicycle

Hi. This is my first post. So I'm sorry if this is the wrong place to ask.

I am looking to buy a bike. I'll mainly be using it just to ride at the park when my husband goes jogging. Anyway, I ran across this bike on Craigslist. I was wondering if it is worth what the seller is asking. I couldn't find too much information on the bike. Here is the description.

12 speed index gearing; Shimano brakes & shifters; 27" wheels; new tires

Classic road bike in very good condition

They also didn't list a size but when I asked they said the seat tube was 21 inches from the top of the axle to the end where the seat post is placed. I'm 5'1" and they said their daughter was the same height and rode it comfortably. I just want to make sure it's the right size for me before I even make an offer.

Thanks. And I hope to be posting more often on here.

It's really hard to judge an asking price when we don't know what he's asking. Also, location affects price. If the seat tube is 15-17 inches, it may fit, measured from center of crank

Sorry. The asking price is 200. I'm in Houston, but they are selling from Lake Jackson about an hour away. I'm thinking that it will be too big for me if that's the case. From all the fit guides online, I should probably not be getting anything larger than a 16 in that style.
